Corrie's Poppies

I finished this painting this afternoon.  It was a painting I had my intermediate watercolor students do at Riverside Arts Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio.  It was a challenge for the students but they did very well.  I will post their results as soon as they finish and I get them photographed.

This painting is from a photograph by Corrie Scott who is a photographer and artist. She generously gave me permission to use her photograph as a source for my painting. Thank you, Corrie!

This painting is 14" x 11" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper.

Corrie - Thank you for commenting, but especially for allowing me to use your stunning photograph as the source for this painting. I have added that fact to my text in the post and apologize for not remembering to put it there when I posted.

Barb, So lovely! Your poppies popped right out from my blog roll. A true test of what I look at first when I log on ... those paintings that pop and are so vibrnat with contrast and color. Lovely!

Dee - thank you so much for your lovely comment. I know what you mean about how some of the sites pop more than others. It must be human nature to go to those first!
