9x12 watercolor of coral poppies done today using 3 of my photos taken across the street from our church, different blooms and colors into a new composition. I used Daniel Smith quinacridone coral, a lovely hue I had decided was too pink so virtually had stopped using it as a stand alone color. All my reds and oranges, even arylide yellow, were put to use. Tomorrow I'll be working on a larger design of the fragile flowers and those will be vivid reds. Support used: Canson 140 lb cold press paper.
