Poppy Thoughts - WIP finished

11x15 watercolor floral on Canson 140 lb cold press paper, finished work in progress with more warm yellows added with Gamboge and Halloween Orange (American Journey).  I did negative painting for stems and leaves by first doing a light value wash over an area, then coming back in with a darker value around the shape.

This finished up beautifully, Kay. I love the palette, fresh and summery. Nice rich colors and love the negative painting too.
