Poppy Patch


These red poppies were growing across the street from our church building and have wanted to paint them since snapping pix last spring/summer. Wet on dry watercolor, 22x15 Italia paper 140 lb cold press, Daniel Smith paints. I started this Friday and finished up today. Now am too pooped to enjoy my birthday party.

Your interpretation of poppies is masterful. It seems you did all the right things and have this lovely painting to show for it! I'm envious of your style!

Happy birthday!!!
Poppy's are my favourite flowers and red is my favourite colour, so this is just my cup of tea! I love the way the light is bouncing off the petals - Beautiful! :0)
