Next week is the first week of summer and at long last the weather is starting to act like summer. So I have been catching up with a lot of outdoor chores. My garden is a picture and so I have been inspired to get my watercolours out and paint flowers galore.
I love painting poppies, they are bold and will give a delicate bunch of flowers a punch.
One thing I am conscious of when painting flowers in water colour is that it is really easy to slip into pretty chocolate box mode, so with these two paintings I tried to create a bolder look but still show the delicacy of the flowers. I am not sure I succeeded in that aim, but I am pretty pleased with the result. Hopefully, next week I can spend more time on my painting and get some oil paintings finished.
Have a great PPF everybody.
