View Full Version : WDE 021012 - Poppies Polarized Purple

Aceo 2.5x3.5" on some kind of light canvas, painted with my 1st gouache real effort. Changed the color and polarized it in Picasa's new update to 3.9 with enhanced tools, except I no longer can get to the tools section. It just didn't come up. Probably would be able to edit this to a nicer color, but what you see is what you get. (I'm sure it will be corrected soon, or I'll simply delete it.)

Its a unique view of these flowers that's very graphic and pulls in the viewer.

Really nice and I like your choice of colors!

Thanks. Vivien. I made this painting from a polarized version of the original
image and it turned out rusty orange with deep green and beige lights. I prefer blues, so chose my own colors. With a semi-limited gouache pallet, I found I need to pre-mix an ample supply of paint and hurry up before it dries. This will keep my on my toes and prevent procrastination.
