Big Red

Red Poppy, 36" x 48", acrylic on aluminum, $2200Poppies fly under the radar in the flower world. Here’s to giving some recognition to the overlooked flowers of the field.

This is a big one at 36″ x 48″.  I started out with mostly red and cut in with the darker spray for the petal structure, then shot in the center of light.  To find balance in the composition,  I  flipped the board upside-down and then sideways so my eyes would adjust to a “new” image. Errors are more easily resolved using this technique.

My mom always loved red and anything with an Asian flare.  This one is for you, mom.
