I'm going to be keeping this post short and sweet, but I am just dying to share the Georgia O'Keeffe inspired Poppy painting that I did this weekend!
Here's the original painted in 1927 by the artist Georgia O'Keeffe.

Stunning isn't it? I love the colors and the blending and shading.
I had help with this of course, because I am very much a beginner. Using a Youtube tutorial by Angela Anderson I was able to paint my own poppy.
Before I show you mine, let me show you the reference photo from Pixabay that Angela Anderson used for her tutorial.

Compare this photo to the painting by Georgia O'Keeffe! Wow right? The realism in O'Keeffe's painting!
Well I don't want to brag but I'm going to because I'm so darned proud of what I was able to paint thanks to Angela Anderson and her wonderful teaching manner and great tutorials!
Here's my version.
Not bad right?
Can you see why I am over the moon happy about this? This was my second attempt. The first one I botched royally and was so upset with it that I shredded it in the paper shredder before the paint was even dry! I sure hope my shredder doesn't get all gummed up!
For the second attempt I just followed Angela faithfully and listened carefully to her tips and suggestions and watched every one of her brush strokes... and I did this folks! I'm thrilled beyond belief and hope that you love it as much as I do!
