Poppy Takeover - Abandoned lavender field in Provence
Palette knife painting
Oil on canvas board
24x30cm (approx 10"x12")
I have painted the abandoned lavender fields before see here. This painting is slightly larger and contains more of the poppies that use any opportunity to takeover.
About this paintingI started this painting before I went to Japan. After coming home from Japan I looked after my granddaughter during the holidays and then spent a few days in the Uk. So it was well and truly dry when I picked it up again yesterday.
To revive the surface I used Liquin, spreading it over with lint free cloth, leaving it for a few minutes and then wiping off the excess. This softens the dry surface and ensures a good bond between the dried paint and the new paint.
