Add to cart Poppies III $410.00 I loved poppies and had previously painted two poppy paintings. When I started this painting, I painted the three flowers first. Then I put the painting aside. For several years, I pulled out the painting to finish it. However,every time I couldn’t decide how to paint the poppy leaves and background. One day last summer, I pulled out the painting again. After staring at it for a while, I decided to paint the entire background a “poppy leaf pale green” and negative space paint the dark color between/behind the actual lacy leaves. I am very pleased with the results.
