Just another poppy painting. Lot’s of thin layers of paint to build up the depth of colour. I applied the different layers of colours on the canvas rather than mix them on the palette. For example, the darkest shadows on the petals were achieved by painting a thin coat of blue and then following with red. This was painted using just five colours. cadmium red, cadmium yellow, ultramarine, yellow ochre and burnt sienna.
