This is another photo manipulation that was finished some time ago. Lots of my photos of honeysuckle and vine. Twisted and warped in Photoshop around the model and then lots of colour changes.

This is the first painting in the new seasons series. I used my own reference photos apart from the face which was purchased from shutter stock. I love those delicate little poppies that you see springing up all over the place. I'm actually quite pleased with it and it was quite a challenge, strangely because of the large expanse of , very light skin tone. It's 1000mm by 700mm oil on linen. I've got three more canvases waiting and have planned all but Autumn. Need a model any volunteers? 
The next one is Winter and Iv'e just started it. Watch this space!
