Oil on 140lb. water colour paper with an acrylic border
I decided to try again with the ACEO. I learned my lesson and tried something less detailed. Just for fun I put a gold border around this floppy poppy to set it off a little more. It was great fun going back to it several times today just to add a few more strokes while I did my house cleaning.
I can hardly wait for the spring flowers to start blooming around here so I can get some more reference material. I haven't painted flowers in a while and I miss them. Maybe I'll go blogging and see how many others have painted flowers lately. Let me know if you have one posted and I'll come visit.
