Complementary Poppy

The wildflowers are in bloom on the hills near our house, and the California Poppy has always been one of my favorites. They take on such a great variety of gestures and shapes as they open and close every day with the sun. It's amazing what four little petals can come up with! I am submitting this painting to the Daily Paintworks Color Challenge (using a limited color scheme - in this case, complementary colors).
