Dreamscape Poppies

Dreamscape Poppies by Nancy Medina

Dreamscape Poppies is based on a plein air painting trip. I smoothed a few poppies and brightened the foliage that caught the most sunlight, and finished this small work today. You can see the place where I painted below, is there a more peaceful sight than a fully stocked easel in a beautiful outdoors setting, calling "come hither" to the artist?

This is so loose for you. It is like a dream...

Did you find it difficult to stop before adding all the detail?

I love the venue, it looks so peaceful there. Lovely painting, Nancy, how cleverly you manipulated the light effects!

Thank you ladies, I appreciate that. Susan it is sometimes, I even find myself striking out the detail at the end. : ) I wish you call could have seen this beautiful setting. Painting outdoors with poppies the size of dinner plates was like a dream come true. : )
