Plenty of Poppies - Day 8 of 30 Paintings in 30 days Challenge
12x9 watercolor done today, brush only, on Canson 140 lb cold press paper. No reference was used, mostly negative painting. First I sprayed water onto the paper then quickly brushed on light warm washes of reds and oranges. Immediately I put down two crumpled sheets of Saran Wrap then covered with a heavy book and let dry. Then I began "seeing" poppy shapes, buds, blooms, stems and leaves.
Also since last Tuesday 9-1-15, I've posted daily works on Leslie Saeta's #30paintingsin30days challenge she hosts annually on her blog Slices of Life you
