Poppies

Acrylic on special paper 24 x 32 cm


I first painted these poppies in watercolour and then wanted to see the different effect of acrylics.

I'm having watercolour lessons and finding the medium very difficult. Mistakes are very difficult to rectify if not impossible - but I love it and will persevere as it's so relaxing.

Thanks to anyone who takes the time to comment on any of my paintings. I'm spurred on by your remarks.

I think this is lovely,you have caught the beauty of this flower.I too,paint flowers, and the only thing I would have done, was made my leaves a little more intense.

Sincerely,

Very inspiring
by: Bob, Michigan, United States

I stumbled onto the website of Bob Davies in a Google search to learn something about starting painting. I had done some watercolor many years ago, did not why to try oil (too much mess for me), and I like the idea of water clean up, so acrylic is the way to go! I have been reading a lot about the subject and am actually practicing my drawing recently. This video series about the boats in the harbor made me feel confident enough to buy some paper, paints and brushes and give it a try. Looking at some of the additional work on the site, like this by Audrey get me excited about starting this new hobby! This is a very nice rendition of poppies and I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Audrey, I love the way you handled the petals. The shading is great and very realistic looking. You did a wonderful job!

Hi Bob
I wasn't going to submit this picture but it was sent by mistake. Thanks for your comment. I'll re-submit it with the proper text. Sorry!
Audrey
By the way, loved your videos on trees. Should have watched that before painting my harvest picture! Thanks again for your website!

Poppies in Acrylic
by: Bob

Good for you for trying out the same subject in different media. I really like the delicacy you've created for the petals.

The pink background bottom left clashes a little with the orangy-red of the petals and I'd like to see the leaves and stems a bit more sharply defined but overall, it's a pleasing picture. Well done.
