Poppy Meadows Provence #1 knife painting - SOLD

Poppy Meadow oil painting by Marion Hedger
Poppy Meadows Provence oil painting
Poppy Meadows Provence #1
15x20cm oil on boxed canvas
Can be hung without a frame.
The poppy field in the Haut Alpes are a lovely sight in spring and early summer. This is a sister painting to Poppy Meadows Provence #2. I used a palette knife and oil paint with a small amount of liquin mixed in to aid the drying. The liquin also gave the paint a nice consistency suitable for the palette knives. Getting a sense of distance is the hardest part, with the mountains just popping up in the background.
