"Eucalyptus and Poppies"
5"X 7" Oil on panel
More fun with eucalyptus trees and adding poppies along a nice diagonal...not quite as steep as the last one I did a few paintings back. I actually love the sloping hillside a diagonal gives to a painting. A nice bit of tension and a welcome break from the flatlands. This was painted alla prima this morning using Lukas 1862 Paints...for those of you not familiar with the term "alla prima" it means to basically complete a painting from start to finish in one sitting.
