Cottington's Poppies 4
This was painted as a gift. It occurred to me that a small painting with just one or two poppies would work well; the recipient is local so I made sure to indicate the location with the radio mast (a distinctive landmark); and because I wanted to be able to give the painting quickly, I used acrylic.
Much as with Fire Hydrant, the background was painted conventionally (with a brush), while the foreground - the poppies - were added with a knife.
Acrylic on canvas, 5 x 7"
