Red Poppies


In our Watercolor Wet and Wild group WnW we began discussing how we create different "reds". Some go more brown, others more orange. And how do you shade a red?

Well this got us talking about a possible red flower challenge. I decided to give it a try today with my Daily Painting. So I painted these poppies. They tend to the brown red and the scan lost the highlights.

Tomorrow I hope to paint more poppies with a more orange red. It will be fun to compare!

Now that's what I call RED.

That's red! The texture on this painting looks like some parts are behind a textured glass.
