Painting – Poppies/Update

I put in the sky with Aqua, a hint of foliage with Hauser Green and Warm White, and added some swirling brush strokes where I planned to put the sun.

Loved, loved, loved the look of the sun. I almost stopped and called the painting finished right here, but I wanted red poppies, so red poppies I must paint.

Here are the first strokes of red. I am not sure about all the shading I am trying to add. I have only dabbled around with acrylics in crafts and have never had any luck actually trying to paint a picture with them. This will be my first large painting. I am sure I have a lot to learn, but I am having FUN! Compared to watercolor painting it is like being on a roller coaster versus a merry-go-round. The pace is fast and furious and a bit breathless. I’ll post the finished painting tomorrow.

Thanks so much for your comments. They fill my life with sunshine.
