"Sundance", Pastel, 7"x11", painted on Uart400, gouache underpainting

I've been tooling around with this little painting for a while now.  The background got brushed off, as well as the stems.  Uart Paper is pretty tough, it can stand up to quite a lot of abuse. 

My goal with this one was to get a bit abstract, yet still keep it real.  I particularly like poppies, their colors are so beautiful, and the texture of the petals so delicate.  I am also fond of the way they appear to dance, hence the title "Sundance".
