"ORIENTAL RED," 10129, daily painter textured poppy © Carol Nelson Fine Art

Another poppy painting. I love the intensity of these red poppies. They are actually slightly redder (less orange) than they are in these photos. If I increased the red tone in the photo, the background was not accurate, so this is a compromise.
As you might notice, I started out with a under painting of blues and purples, then overlayed it with beige, gray and green tones. The neutral background really makes the reds pop.This 36x18 original textured acrylic painting is available on my website. Click here for purchase information.
