California Poppies--I think

Again, another painting I did from a Daily Painters reference image of an artist that I like. Again, I can't find the name of this artist but I like the chunky style. From now on I am going to make an effort to write down the names of the artist I am inspired by. Mine are slightly different but still I will name the artist I am inspired by if possible. This one really is really more of a smooshy mess since I had trouble with the pallet knife on this one. But all in all it turned out ok.

Beautiful! I like that chunky style too, is that achieved with the pallet knife? I really wish I could paint! Yours turned out lovely.

I love the chunkiness,a few of my favorite artist "monet"and "manet"'s art looked chunky. You should check out some of their work,you would probably like it. This is beautiful.Makes me want to touch it.

The background color is perfect with the color of the poppies.

You are doing a fantastic job!!

Martha, you outdid yourself on this. When I painted in oils, I painted very much like you, heavy, thick paint, kind of a VanGogh look. I really like this one. Good job girlfriend.

It is amazing how you do great with any media style. I love poppies!

Pamela Holderman said...

beautiful! Hey Somerset Studios is looking for paintings done in 'poppy' color - if you are at all interested you could get this published, but you would have to part with it for a long time.

Martha, I love your new poppy header. Have some fun with the oils. Wonder how you could add calligraphy to that? hmmm.

Usually, if you go back to a brush after using a palette knife, it will feel like you have much more control.
Try it and see if this works for you.
Lovely poppies, Martha!

That is awesome-love the chunky. I've been oil painting once a week and working on the chunky style. Are you taking an online oil class--I can't remember?
