Shade and Poppies, Tuscany

Shade & Poppies, Tuscany, 20cm x 50cm Acrylic on wood panel. Copyright Theresa Evans

I bought some lovely wood panels to experiment on. They're about 1.5" deep so can even stand free on a shelf instead of hanging. This is acrylic but I've just prepared a couple with Arches watercolour paper to work on tomorrow because I like the idea of being able to do a mixed media piece that doesn't require framing. Watch this space :~)

This gorgeously overgrown area was at the bottom of the field at the apartment we stayed in near St Gimignano in Tuscany. I was attracted by the very colourful shade of poppies, dandelion clocks and wildflowers contrasted by the bright sun in the fields beyond.
