Poppies in the grass

16*20  oil on stretched canvas Summer 2014

I painted the “Poppy seeds in the grass” following the Igor Sakharov’s youtube lesson  .

Mostly created with palette knife. Used brush for underpainting only.

I enjoyed using the palette knife. Amazing how this sharp piece can create such delicate touches and fine details.

The impasto technique allowed me to to create three-dimensional , sculptural looking flowers and grass, to create vibrant colors and colors transitions.

I love the resulting painting and look at it with pleasure every day as it is in my bedroom now 🙂
