View Full Version : Country Poppies

I've loved this photo by Honza from our very own RIL and just got the urge to do a quick little study tonight (5" x 7") on one of the scraps of Crescent IB I had left over. Thinking about Monet inspired me to do this today.

Very much a Monet feel. :)

Celeste, this one has that something "extra" to it. IMHO, this one is a winner.

Like those distant buildings. Very "French country" looking, so I guess Monet was there with you!

I like it, it has a Monet feel for sure. I like the colors. Jan

Like all your works, it's wonderful.
I think you could've broken the middle yellow patch a bit with a poppy or two, though.

These little studies have a charm of their own and often turn into pieces worth framing - like this one! :D

Hollie...I was just thinking about you today! What a coincidence. I'm so glad to hear from you and hope you're well.
Thanks Assaf...you've got a good eye...may just do that.
Thanks Maureen...in fact it's inhabiting a little frame right now.

Nice little study! It turned out great! Love the punchy orange poppy patches and your tiny buildings are perfect. I'll bet it looks lovely in the mahogany frame! :D

Normally, I'm not a big fan of this kind of style. But, this piece is very nice. I especially like the colors.

So beautiful Celeste... looks like an oil painting. Love the texture/brush strokes in the sky.
