Poppies by Moonlight

"Poppies in Moolight" watermedia, 5.5" x 11"   $125 with archival matt and backing

Another overpainted composition from an abandoned painting.  Can you tell there is a horse under this one?




With a vertical composition and a blue-dominant palette, this one is very different from my first painting in this series.


I used windsor blue, (green shade), manganese blue, cobalt blue, and ultramarine blue, accented with rose madder, alizarine crimson, aureolin, and small amounts of copper, gold, and transparent metallics.  Negative painting creates passages of light, and dark value scumbling gives punch.

I have been a lifelong rider and horse lover. I got my first "horse" at a yard sale; it was a pony actually. It was sometime in the early 60's. I was in 3rd or 4th grade. The pony was perhaps $10. My sister, brother, and I pooled our money and led him home. At the time my parents were traveling, and my Uncle Bill promptly made us return it. (stay tuned...more to come...)

    This composition, also overpainted from an abandoned painting, was turned vertically with a blue-dominant palette, which resulted in a very different composition.  I used manganese blue, cobalt blue, ultramarine blue, and Windsor Blu”
