I don’t think I will ever get tired of painting poppies. I hope you don’t get tired of seeing my paintings and creative adventures.
Happy Sunday, friends! 💚 😀
I watched another Peggy Dean Skillshare class recently and one of the projects was loose abstract poppies. I was very inspired by the class and decided to give her technique a try.
If you are interested in checking out the class you can find it here, Autumn watercolors.
My first attempt using colors similar to Peggy’s demo painting.
Simple shapes adding a lot of color on the bottom and then softening the top petal edges with clean water. I love how that worked out.
Watercolor Tip: Adding a green stem while the flower is still a little wet creates a nice bloom of color at the base of the flower. When the stem bleeds into the color of the flower it always looks natural and delicate.
My next painting with fewer flowers and different colors. 🌸
I think this one is my favorite, but I do love the soft distant pink poppies in the first painting as well. It’s all about practice and having fun.
I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love.
Until next time, share a smile and shine on!
