Poppy Miniature Painting

'Poppy Surprise' 3.5x2.5 pastel
I am back from the lake and had a chance to paint some small aceo size paintings while on the houseboat. I painted in the morning while the wind was calm. I had my travel size watercolor set and a very small box of pastels. I did about 15 little watercolor underpaintings. Once they dried I started to add pastel to some of them but it was getting quite windy so I had to put them away. This is one I managed to finished. I am getting better at letting the underpainting work with the pastel instead of covering it all up!
