Bringing the outside in

California Poppy (6″ x 8″ oil on board)

I’ve been meaning to paint the California Poppies in my garden for weeks.  They are such cheerful things – opening up in the mornings to greet the sunshine and then closing up in the evening when it starts to get dark.  It’s been so hot though that I didn’t think I could manage to sit out there and paint them so I decided to pick just one flower, pop it in a tiny vase and retreat to the relative shade and cool of my kitchen to paint it there!

Many thanks to those who have been following my antics on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and for the likes and comments.  It’s great to get such support and encouragement.

Here is a small still life to end the week. It’s a bit of a zingy one!  I had fun playing around with yellow and blue.
