Something new – Day 325

I’ve been working away on the commission I can’t show you (it’s a surprise) and also on the trilliums every so often.

Yesterday I was feeling a little overwhelmed with the deadlines on those pieces so I decided to do something completely different. I know this goes against all logic but every so often I need to do something fun that doesn’t have a deadline.

I have been itching to paint these gorgeous poppies for a while now so yesterday I sketched it out and this morning I did the first layer of paint. I love it! I have kept it really loose and I want to keep that feeling as I add more layers of paint to it.

I’m going to let it dry for a few days before doing the second layer so tomorrow morning I’ll be painting the the commission again.

A change is as good as a rest, right?
