Popping up Poppies

11x15 watercolor done today on hot press paper on the backside of a failed dog portrait, so this one was an old dog for sure.  This scene is largely pure fun of orange poppies using Daniel Smith's transparent pyrrol orange and new gamboge, and was featured in a timed contest on WetCanvas in the Weekend Drawing Event.  My time was 55 minutes using direct painting of darks first on dry paper.
