"Red Poppies in Shade", 12 x 9" acrylic on watercolor paper
A new original painting of red poppies is now on line. The red colors, some of my favorites, were fun to paint on gesso coated watercolor paper.
Even though the colorful flowers are in shadow with bright light behind them I chose to paint them with opaquely with acrylics. Another possibly would have been to show the transparency of the petals with watercolors or glazes of acrylics. View some of my other paintings of poppies for these two different effects.
