Your site for outdoor painting
These poppies were bouncing around in the wind just begging to be noticed. The site was so beautiful that I needed to share, hope you enjoy this.

I really like the play of depth in this painting. Takes you right in.
Wonderful distance and foreground! nice composition and sudden color!
Thanks Catherine, definitely will apply your tips in my next and future painting sessions, I know it will take time to be able to actually just"apply and leave the pain" its all practice. I heard its tha same with watercolour, apply the paint and leave it to do its work. I know it doesn work entirely like that with oils or acrylics but I think it's about wanting to correct things and then we mess it up. The painting will look "tired" then. Its great to have you a s friend. Thanks! :-)
Catherine - a great gallery and I love these poppies, we only seem to have red ones here which are beautiful too. I know what you mean about using thin paint - I do watercolours and when I started oils they all looked like wc but now I am trying to use thicker paint too but you look as if you are not having too many problems as this is wonderful
Thank you Dagmara! I'd love to have a workshop, will let you know when and if! One thing I have learned lately is to pile more paint onto the surface, at least with the lighter colors. I have a habit of painting too thinly, like "staining" the surface, but applying paint with thick brushstrokes gives a better effect. Another tip I am applying is - not to overwork it by piddling, another bad habit I had developed . Just to brush on the paint and leave it alone works better. : )
I want to paint like that! :-)
