I have so much to be thankful for. This painting was inspired by a request that I paint poppies.
I love poppies!
For some reason though, I have never painted or even really drawn one. So it was high time to try it.
Poppies are bold and fragile by nature – but for this painting I wanted to focus on the BOLD, an play around with 60’s influences, and also with a bit of Paul Gaugin’s signature style – outlining things.
The great thing about the Big Thankyou Project is the freedom it gives me – freedom to experiment with different subjects and styles. In the next painting you’ll see I went a completely different direction… as if this wasn’t different enough!
