'Dreaming of Poppies' 11x14 pastel sold I never tire of painting poppies and they make a perfect subject to show my technique to students. Today I had a private class and we worked on watercolor underpaintings. I chose poppies for the subject and had the chance to use my new Daniel Smith watercolors. I want to play with them some more but so far I liked them. This painting is on Uart 600 grit paper.
