POPPIES ON STATION ROAD – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

Not one I did plein air, but it was a scene I saw on my way from a recent painting expedition. It was getting late into the morning and my tea had run out so I took a few photos.

I had the suspicion that someone had scattered poppy seeds into the field – there was a house opposite – but the scene was quite arresting even for that.

I had to resort to a bit of gouache in the end along with some scrubbing and scratching but hopefully I captured the randomness of it all.

EVENING POPPIES – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1060623(2)

I saw one of my floral paintings when I visited someone yesterday. I had forgotten about the painting and looking at it afresh was very pleasing. It was a floral like this one. I am a sucker for light on flowers and when I saw this in my garden  I had to paint  it, even though this must be the fourth time I have painted poppies. I may even have a go at redoing the painting on the client’s wall, but this time a little looser.
