Poppies and Larkspur –  Arches 140# cold press paper – 22″ x 15″

I do not always learn things quickly.  Sometimes I do, but sometimes I have to do something more than once to really learn it.  And sometimes I need to hit myself  with a baseball bat before I can get something into my head.

This is the second time I’ve painted this image.  Here’s the first version. What have I learned?   I know I didn’t struggle with this one as much, and I think the colors are a little cleaner and brighter…not as muddy as I can get them sometimes. If I look at them together, there are somethings I like about each.  It was a good learning experience and I DID not have to do any bodily damage to complete this.  Whew.
