Poppy Power

I am a control freak.... there, I said it!  I hate letting go, I like to know what is going to happen...... I don't even like surprise gifts!

I'm trying hard to let go a little, so with this painting I didn't sketch it out first.  I quite like what happened, it's loose without being too messy, and actually looks something like I was hoping it would.

Great job , very loose and really eye catching!

Dear Ruth,
Lovely work! Me, too, try to achieve what you said in this post. That paradox is essential for a loose style.
Cheers, Sadami
