Poppy Fields

My painting "Poppy Fields" is finished!  This week i put the fiddly finishing touches to it by adding a sparkle of light to the foliage.

Almost Finished!

The good news this week is that my oil painting course is continuing!  We had a new member joining us and i was also delighted that an old friend returned.  So i continued with my poppy field painting.  I have brightened the flowers so that they look like they're catching the sunlight more and also added detail in to the foliage in the foreground.  All i need to do is add touches of highlights when the paint is dry next week and then i will be on to my next piece!

Creative Oil Course Term 3

The next term of my oil painting course started this week and we were all dismayed to hear that the people that be want to close us down due to low numbers (must be because people are away on holidays at this time of year).  Thankfully though we have an amazing tutor who stood up for her students and said no matter what we are painting and we will find a couple more students to join for next week!  So the search is on, then hopefully we can keep our little painting group going!  I had a lovely couple of hours working on my artwork.  The poppies are really growing up the painting now!
