Poppy #6

And finally, the last and the best of the watercolour poppies. I used the same colours again - cadmium red, ultramarine and yellow ochre - I splattered a small amount of masking fluid to create white marks. Then I loosely blended the colours on the paper before I painted the poppies, and it all worked out beautifully this time. It's a small enough painting, but I'm very happy with the colours and the composition.

That's me done with poppies, for a little while at least.
