Poppies in the Wind by Karen Tarlton

Poppies in the Wind

This is a large and vibrant painting with many layers of rich oil applied with knife. I don't use a brush anymore with most of my paintings. The knife is much more forgiving and the one little knife can accomplish more than a dozen brushes. I love to apply the paint thick in spots so it sometimes takes a bit of time to dry, but the great texture is worth the wait!
