In this video you can see how I paint six single poppies in watercolor; in this order as shown in the thumbnail in Madder Lake Red Light, Azure, Purple, Cadmium Lemon, Titian Red, English Red. I use a bit of the loose wash technique to get a blurry background and also a washed-out shape of the flower. Unfortunately, the purple of a poppy is played back as a dark blue by the video camera. My favourite single poppy is the one in English Red. Doreen.
