Poppies in a Copper Pot

It's very difficult to photograph a painting that has a shiny black background.

Well, actually, the black is red and green and blue and more mixed together to make black.

The leaves are made of blues, greens and purples but are lost in the background if the light is too low. That's on purpose. The stars of the show are the beautiful poppies.

This picture taken outside shows the color better without so much reflected light.
You can see the color in the leaves better in this shot.

This painting is acrylic on canvas 36x48
