Poppy abstraction 1


From time to time I have thought about doing a painting with poppies, but I didn't happen until now. This is my first take on these flowers.

  1. Another strong floral! Very nice Roger. The flowers look like they're dancing. --And poppies do in the breezes. Do you work with liquid acrylics?

    1. Thanks Linda.
      I do use some Golden Liquid acrylics. I use it mainly in the line work (mostly black/white/yellow), but do use it at other times too.

  2. Another dynamic floral! The poppies look like they're dancing in the breeze. Very nice Roger. Do you work with liquid acrylics?

  3. Beauitufl!! They realy do look like they're dancing. I would recognize them as poppies anywhere but I love that they have your style and spin on them.

    1. Thanks Crystal. Am glad they look like popies. They are in a way abstract as they are and giving them my personal spin was fun.

  4. Ce que j'aime chez les coquelicots ce sont avant tout les boutons, puis la fleur elle-même... Ce devrait être l'inverse. Lorsque j'étais enfant, comme beaucoup d'enfant nous aimons découvrir et je me souviens que je prenais du plaisir à entrouvrir les boutons des fleurs de coquelicot sans les cueillir. Très délicatement je déployais leurs pétales froissés. Leurs couleurs étaient très pastelles. Est-ce la lumière ou le soleil qui leur apporte leur belle couleur rouge ou simplement la maturité ?... car après tout je tentais de les faire naître prématurément...
    J'aime vos merveilleux coquelicots qui me ramènent à mon enfance. Ils sont d'une grande délicatesse et semblent nous charmer.
    Vos nuances de verts autour d'eux sont renversants et se marient à merveille.
    Gros bisous.

  6. You seem to be having more fun every painting! They're wonderful. So bold.
    I believe you when you say the DPW challenge isn't you, but I would LOVE to see you do a miniature!! You don't need a canvas, it could be on paper.
    ANyway, to each their own... different challenges inspire different people.
    Have a fun art-filled week.

    1. Thanks Nora. If everything goes to plan with a painting, then I have a load of fun. If it doesn't I usually have a fun voyage at least and learn a lot.

      PS! Not sure if I can be tempted to do a miniature painting, but you never know. =)

      Happy painting

  7. Nice to wake up to this lovely painting, Roger. I really like the way you have the colors placed and the buds in the middle are a nice touch!

  9. How is it that a gallery hasn't grabbed every one of your paintings! I've said it before and I'll say it again, a room covered with your artwork would be astonishing!

    1. Haven't really gone out looking for galleries and
      I also think that I still have some growing to do.

      Art is a matter of taste. To have connections and opportunities doesn't hurt when it comes to getting a show.
