Spanish Poppies in front of Window 2016

Spanish poppies are very large and vivid in color which is why they are so fun to paint.

I started with the poppies, keeping in mind what else I wanted to put in the painting

I set in the vase very lightly in case I had to move something.


When everything was where it belonged on the picture plane, I started painting a la prima.


The metallic bar across the window was white, so I respected it and painted around it.

This is the final result.
