Bright Poppies 24

Mona Pendleton | Monday, April 4, 2016 @ 8:45 PM | , , ,

Hi! I hope you all having a great week so far! Scott and I spent the weekend in Los Angeles watching Connor run in a track meet and to photograph all the beautiful roses that are in full bloom. Today I have an 11" x 14" gesso painted canvas art board featuring a couple of oil painted poppies which were inspired by a Gary Jenkins video tutorial:
I love experimenting with color and various backgrounds. A black background really seems to make the colors pop right off the canvas. I'm getting pretty brave and I think I'm going to attempt a bigger size canvas to hang in my home this week :)




I'm joining along with Paint Party Friday:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)
