Poppies

Several years ago, before we sold our house, we planted a lovely garden that included red poppies. The flowers were beautiful as were their tall, spindly stems. Of course I took lots of photos while they bloomed and lately have been looking at them in the constant search for subject matter. I painted this little watercolour back in January........

........and did these more recently. They started out as watercolour paintings, but I then began to add intense ink coloured pencils, pastel, marker and acrylic paint. I was happy with the results, as they are loose and painterly.
