Iceland Poppies

Step one of my Iceland Poppies - I am beginning with the stems working to keep the highlight and shadows.  The stems are painted with transparent yellow, and while the stem is wet I dropped in the dark shadow pigment, winsor green (blue shade) and burnt sienna mixture.
The leafs are a funny shape when painting them I think of a cartoon characters hand.


  1. This is going to be great Joyce. Glad we are getting to see your step by step on these poppies. How large is this piece going to be?

  2. The size is 18x24 keeping it a bit smaller than most of the pieces lately.
