Some days you can be bang on; other days you miss the mark completely.
This is a 20″ x 16″ oil.
Below is how I started. I painted a background then started applying poppy shapes with no indication of scale or even composition.
I wasn’t happy. So I stopped.
I switched to the canvas size above and focused on painting the poppy sizes in relation, in scale, to the size of the canvas and concentrated on a cruciform composition.
I’m happy now.
