Butterflies and Poppies Finished

Here is is finished painting. I decided not to post the interim pictures because my flash made such a glare on the wet paint. I'm happy with this one.

The month is over for the current "Master of the Month" which I've been doing all the van Gogh study for. But I will carry on in the VVG tradition...

However I am departing slightly with a series of mixed media pieces inspired by black & white photos I took on one of my trips to France. I have printed the photos on canvas, and now I am painting over certain areas, leaving specific parts of the picture in black & white.

It is a study in contrasts. I will post this new work in my next entry.
