Last weeks blog dealt with no’s 1-5 – you can recap on that blog here.
This week we are going to look at the next 5 leading up to the top 10.
In at no. 6 is White Poppies. I love doing the backgrounds for these paintings. Many people have asked me if it is a stencil – definitely not! This is all done by hand and no pattern is ever the same. It is like a fingerprint.
No.6 ~ White Poppies
No. 7 is also held by a poppy painting ~ The Poppy Collective was a huge painting, the first large one I ever did of poppies. It was definitely a challenge to do, especially the background as you can well imagine. The painting measured 760mm x 920mm.
No.7 ~ The Poppy Collective
Sunset Reflections is at no. 8. The original was purchased by my sister and hangs in her bedroom. It was a marriage between the poppies and the sunset/landscape.
No. 8 ~ Sunset Reflections
Another poppy painting has made it into the top 10 ~ Poppies in the Rising Sun. This particular one was featured on the RedBubble homepage.
No.9 ~ Poppies in the Rising Sun
And lastly, in at no. 10 is my Musical Mural. I painted this mural in my husbands (Templeton) recording studio (Sofa Studio, Cape Town). It measures 1 meter x 1.2 meters. It was great fun to do and let me get out of my ‘box’ for a while to explore a new style. I also used a variety of mediums, such as chalk pastel (fixed it and then varnished over it to make it ‘permanent’) and gold spray-paint. The main medium was acrylic.
