Red show painting in progress

red poppies painting in progress

I've been working away on a painting for the Red Show here in Port. This painting features two big red poppies (and a bud lol)

As an artist I keep learning... this painting uses many of the 'mark making' techniques I figured out during my 'Autumn Art Journal' painting-a-day project from back in Sept. I've painted many poppies in the past, but usually as part of a larger landscape, so it's fun to concentrate on just the flowers. I'm really getting into all the different shades of red!

The 'Red Show' features paintings with a red theme, and is annual delight for Port Stanley art-goers and artists alike. This year is the 10th year celebration!! The event brings together my fav Port area artists and their amazing work! ⁣It also coincides with the Santa Claus parade that runs past the venue and so is a festive delight on many levels.

At some point during the night, artistic merry-makers from inside the Inn gather out on the wrap-around porch to watch the Christmas floats drive by (usually filled with folks we know lol... (after all it's a small village)).

The opening festivities all takes place at the Windjammer Inn P.S. Friday, Nov. 24th... the show runs till Feb, 2024.⁣
