I had so much fun with this one, I couldn't wait a whole week to show you my Daily Painting from Friday.
Artist Kay Smith, posted a challenge on WetCanvas to take one of the images she had selected and to do it in a Van Gogh style.
I selected a beautiful image she had of Poppies, and spent the next two hours (There's that time limit.) having way too much fun.
A little ad-libbing, a touch of Vincent, and a brand new Love...A Quiller Transparent Pyrole Red that sent me into Orbit, and has immediately become my favorite acrylic color. It's capability reminds me a lot of Windsor Newton's WC Crimson Lake (I think that is the name.)
The Result being a little 6.5 x 5 Acrylic painting on WC paper, that I am really excited about. While this one will still go in my Not For Sale pile. It has let me revisit Vincent's incredible Irises in my own way, and in doing so has offered me a glimmer of my former style.
Thank you Kay for helping to light my path.
