The West Highland Way is a long distance walk in Scotland (about 100 miles) and it hits the lowlands to the highlands. Despite days of grey skies and copious amounts of rain, there is an abundance of local colour. I prepared and textured a 6 x 6 wood cradle and did this piece in acrylic. The painting wraps around the sides.
The title reflects that this is one of three paintings done from a single wide angle photo. Poppies are so striking, and yet single varieties have few individual petals. This variety is a common roadside wildflower in southern France. I've been somewhat distracted from my blog but have been painting and will be posting more for the coming week. This piece (10 x 10) is oil on deep canvas and the painting wraps around the sides.
