After a long time, I once again felt like painting a floral watercolor. And yes, it’s poppies again. You can never get enough of poppies. I also used the Line + Wash technique again. In addition, I have used wax to get some white spots in the flowers and stems. A bit of Negative Technique should not be left out of the painting to clear the poppies from the background. And a few splashes here and there make the background much more interesting. I should have my own playlist for poppies; I already have so many videos. And because I like to work with different media, there will probably be a lot more videos added. Doreen.
