Red Poppies and Wild Flowers in Glass Jar April 2015 – The Watercolor Process –
The poppy and wild flower season has ended for the year. I’ve been busy painting because I know how short this season is. When these flowers dry up in the fields, they are a fire hazard in the city, so they were all cut close to the ground last week. I wasn’t able to do very many, but I’ll be posting the watercolors I was able to do.
What I like most about painting these flowers is the combination of colors.
I penciled in the jar lightly to keep parallel lines parallel to the edge of the paper.
