I just adore the girl in this new painting, POPPY PRINCESS. She is the tallest poppy in all of the land and will someday be crowned Queen.
Details and close-ups, along with archival prints, now available in my ART SHOP. Enjoy!
The idea for this painting came after reading that farmers cut down the tallest poppy in the field. Well, in my fairy tale land, those who stand out, tall and strong, are royalty and cannot be cut down. The original painting was created using acrylics, colored pencils, pastels, modern and vintage origami papers, pencil, ink, and artist pens. The girl’s face is drawn and then painted using lots of materials for a beautiful mixed media effect. Her dress is carefully cut from origami paper and then the pleats were drawn in with pastel. On top, I applied a decoupage finish.
