White Poppies" Demo
Painted wet-into-wet, a soft wash of warm colours was textured using plastic wrap,
Pale grey washes were used to softly shape the flower petals
The petal shapes and warm stalks in background were isolated with a wash that stretched right to the edges of the paper focussing on a rich wash of non-staining (mostly opaque) colours
A layer of foliage & stalk shapes were isolated using a mixture of opaque and some staining colours; the yellow flower centre was defined and the baby bud was painted in.
The final layer of pinpoint darks was put in using staining paints. The details on the yellow centre and petals were directly painted.
