Twilight Prickly Poppies ~ xPost Watercolor


Cross posted from Watercolor forum:

13.5x21.5 watercolor on Langton 140 lb cold press paper, inspired by the thousands of wild prickly poppies growing around here. Background is Daniel Smith's Nickel AzoYellow, alizarin crimson, and phthalo blue primaries. Shadows on the wildflowers' white petals were mixed with several palette colors for varied greys.
C&C welcome

I missed this too - sorry Kay!

It's so delicate and the colours are beautifully mixed and balanced.

Love this one Kay. The darker background really makes them pop off the page.
