Wild Red Poppies

Title: Wild Red Poppies
Size: 30" x 24"
Medium: Oil on gallery wrapped canvas
check out tonight's auction on eBay for purchase
Rough scrapes of acrylic color prepare the base of this painting. Overlays of smooth, rich oils then create the vision poppies and the illusion of sunny fields and the outdoors. This painting is very large and using complementary colors of red and green which always appear brighter when placed next to eachother, so I do it often in paintings.
I have a friend that is an interior designer and often commissions me to paint red poppies for her clients. She says a room can always use a punch of red. I would frame this one in a wide black frame but it is so large that it looks great without a frame as well.
Hope you enjoy!
