Camino de Santiago - Poppies Towards Carrion (Painting)

Good morning fellow Peregrinos. I want to share my latest painting from our spring 2017 walk. This piece is inspired by a photo taken on our way from Fromista to Carrion de los Condes. Walking past this portion of a farm lined with these beautiful red poppies brought some brightness to an otherwise cloudy and gloomy day. I hope it brings back fond memories for those who passed this way. Enjoy!
Michael

Beautiful painting Michael - what medium did you use? Was it soft pastels?
Cheers - Jenny
Thank you Jenny for your "props" on this piece. It is a painting in acrylic although I must admit that the vibrancy of the colours and the sharpness of the edges throughout the painting are muted in the photo. I think I need more lessons in taking photos than painting. I am just happy to share and have people such as you enjoy and bring back Camino memories. Buen Camino.

Hi Michael - you really have done a beautiful job with this painting - the colour palette is lovely and the poppies are so vibrant.

You spoke of lessons in photography ... you might be interested to research a book on Camino photography called "Photo Camino - A Personal Guide to Photography on the Camino". It's written by Bill Bennett, a well-known Australian film director, author and photographer. Amazon have a hard copy version plus Kindle version. The details are:
As our wonderful t2andreo here on the Forum says, I hope this helps.

Cheers - Jenny

That's awesome! The poppies were something that really touched me along the way.

Michael Thank you for the picture. I walked the stretch between Burgos and Leon in May 2017 and remember the spot very vividly. I took several photos of the poppies looking toward the hut or little house.

It brings warm memories flooding back.
