1/21 days – My favourite painting

Today’s prompt is “My favourite painting”. (off to a late start as it’s officially day 2 now)

Often my favourite painting is not the one that I feel is the best one, but the one I finished last. These poppies I began a couple of years ago, loved the background as usual then made some very awkward lifeless flowers on top. I painted over (and subsequently that first lovely background) several times, then gave it a break until recently when I had just one more go at loosening up. And now I’m actually quite pleased, at least it’s headed in the right direction, so I’ve started two new backgrounds for companion poppy pics!

My other favourite of the month is also a new old painting, background has been in storage and off the frame, I liked it so much that I restretched it and decided to add something. Originally it was intended to be vertical, but I changed my mind at the last minute and really love how the green sky works as a steep mountainside too.
