'Poppy Heaven' 16x20 pastel
I have been wanting to paint these poppies and when my student chose it last week for her painting I knew it was time for me to try it. I started with a watercolor underpainting on Uart paper. (bottom photo) I love the vibrancy of red pastels. I used Terry Ludwigs and some Great American Artwork pastels for this painting. While I had my red pastels out I did a smaller poppy on black velour. I'll post that tomorrow. This week in class we will be working on painting on a black surface so I am having fun preparing for the class!
