Matilija Poppy

I've been so enjoying painting with acrylics.  I had tried before but was never satisfied either with the process or the finished project.  This time however, I first started using them in a very free and undefined way, intuitively, just slapping on paint and seeing what happened.

In this painting I used more of a purposeful approach.  I knew before I began, what I wanted to paint and I had a photo that I had taken a few years ago.   I kept reminding
myself not to get to fussy and to stay loose.  I very pleased with the outcome.
