Splash of Colour

Field Poppies
Painting size 15" x 11"
I chose vibrant colours to get me back into my watercolour painting mode after having spent a couple of days helping my husband Ian paint the walls in my new studio. To have as much light as possible the walls have been painted an off white colour with white ceilings so after not seeing any colour for a couple of days I thought why not get out the big guns!

  1. Oh I'd be so thrilled with my own studio instead of being crammed into my little art room which doubles as a storage room! Enjoy!!! Love the poppies!

  2. Love it. Your backgrounds are always so good, and so many lost and found edges and color mixes in the flowers - I continually find little bits of interest in this painting. Great one, Lorraine. Congrats on your new beautiful studio.

    1. Thanks Terry, I did try using little bits of doilies to add some texture but they didn't take all that well but the playing was fun
