Red poppies seaside painting

red poppies painting flat lay

Nothing expresses vibrant happiness more than bright red flowers...putting them with a seaside view can only make it better!!!

When creating a painting I find it's more successful when I actually feel the emotion I'm trying to convey in order to best express it (only makes sense right) but sometimes what I'm painting can pull it out even more. That's how I feel about this painting. ⁠

I usually paint straight from my imagination. Not a lot of representational artists do this. It takes a lot of practice to put to canvas what you see in your mind's eye. It's very intuitive. When you paint this way you have to almost touch the object with your mind and your hand with the paintbrush at the same time in order to feel it's shape (I know that sounds weird, but it's true lol).

Touching these bright red flowers with my imagination and bringing them to life made me so happy. I hope they bring out the happiness in you too!!!⁠ ⁠

This original painting is part of my new 'Summer Seaside Collection' of one of a kind coastal artworks. The collection is now available for purchase in my online art studio.

Pop by my studio and take a trip to the seaside!!⁠
