|Peaceful Poppies by Leada Wood©|
This Mixed Media painting is 12x24 on illustration board and is available. I think this is one of my favorite color palettes. Rich, warm, vibrant earthy colors just make me feel good. I used modeling paste and some of my stencils to give this painting raised textures. I also sculpted around the poppies with a palette knife to give them a defined edge. It is always interesting to experiment and find a new way to interpret a subject. Sometimes they turn out like you imagine or they take you on a completely different path. Kind of like life isn't it...you just never know what to expect!
