Poppy Flower Carpet
Palette Knife Painting
You may recognise this scene, it is my favourite scene of the poppy fields.
I have purchase the latest book by Richard Schmid, Alla Prima 11 and my head is so full of what I read, I decided to relax with my one of my favs.
I am trying to read the chapters one by one, but I find his rambling style a bit soporific. I am determined for the info to sink in though. So I must practice with some sketches, but much of his work has a earth tone to it and, as you can see, that is not my style. I do find it interesting and doing some exercises will always help. I do find his work very interesting, especially his florals and landscapes and how he can say so much with out over filling the canvas as is my habit and something I want to work on.
