June 15, 2010 - Day 309

Da Vinci watercolor on 140 lb Bockingford cold press watercolor paper

I love California Poppies and have always wanted to capture the bright cheerfulness I feel when I look at them. I had gone on a walk-about last week and taken more reference pictures of poppies in bright sunlight. When I decided to paint the poppies today I had forgotten that I had attempted them in September - two days before the roses in yesterday's post.

I love the way today's painting turned out and it was exactly what I was hoping to achieve.
