I've been having so much fun playing around with my acrylics ,since being inspired with the fall colours surrounding me lately, and the painting reflects this as well as the theme of Remembrance. Poppies are one of my favourite flowers because of their array of colour and what they represent.
With Remembrance Day just around the corner I thought this painting would be a small tribute to the veterans who fought so hard for all the freedoms we enjoy today. When creating this painting I used lots of acrylic and gel to give this piece tonnes of texture ( Golden products are my favourite!) and brilliant colour. Can't you see all that yummy paint! I do go through a lot of it and the result is always worth it don't you think?
Finally it was given a varnish treatment to protect the colours giving it "permission" to be hung outdoors . I love hanging art outdoors on garden walls and will be creating many such paintings in the future. Let me know what you think I would love to hear from you xo
