Oil Painting Progress, Recommendations Please, Creating a Video Guide For You Guys!

I have spent the last few days painting this oil on starched canvas painting called Parading Poppies!

Please let me know if there are any improvements I could make to the artwork and what you would like to know in a video guide of this painting. What questions to you want me to answer!

I am still working on the video but it will include how I produced this painting and the steps I took. So if you would like to be notified of the realise, sign up here.

Here are some progress shots I have taken so far!








Just need to make some finishing touches and finish the video!

Thank you, these are colours I love to paint with. I hope you will put up some pictures of your painting next summer, it would be great to see. How big is the wall? It sounds really interesting.

Thank you. I have tried a few prints of paintings with mixed success - people tend to prefer the originals. Hope your wife gets her wish!

I like your painting, it's fresh and vibrant. Video is good although I feel it needs editing a little. I ain't signing up to your newsletter. I do like most of your work though.
