In the spring I like to paint the wild flowers since they are so colorful and my favorite painting theme.
Since I’m painting from life, I put in the poppies first before they wilt.
Then I start putting in other flowers, not forgetting about the equally important background which includes the glass pickle jar.
Here I am almost finished. Just putting in the finishing touches. Not too many.
The watercolor is almost finished here. I paint what I see and leave a lot of the white of the paper.
This year the wild flower season was brief. Less rain, less flowers…
This is a new painting of bougainvillea and Poppies in a pickle jar. I painted it in the Spring. Colorful spring flowers and glass is something I can’t resist painting. This painting is made with think paint and loose brush strokes.
