I had a couple hours in the studio Sunday morning
and wanted to paint something from life,
so I put a bucket of poppies and sunflowerson the counter in front of a sunny window.
"Poppies in the Studio"
8 x 8 quick oil study
on carton board
In an effort to develop my paintings further,
I worked on it some more today.
Poppies in Studio
I dulled down the objects in the front,
made the window lighter
and played with a pallet knife,
all the while overthinking every move.
My goal is to learn how to re-visit paintings
without loosing that
the initial excitement
of the moment.
