In honor of Remembrance Day, I am posting my recent painting of red poppies. This watercolor is another painting that I did by masking out three of the poppies then pouring, blowing and spraying paint in the background. After the paint dried, I painted the three poppies. Then I “found” more poppies, leaves and buds in the background through negative painting.

really wonderful work Leslie. Great job.
Great color symphony Leslie. Each of these poppies can become a very good print or greeting card. I played with my view-finder and notices that your composition allows to play and separate this painting into at least three great prints :)
Beautiful Leslie, the red is so vibrant.
Wow this is super beautiful! The colors are so striking! Love your style! :)
Wow! Thanks for all the comments! They have made my day. Looks like I do need to make it into greeting cards and prints. Great suggestion.
I love your painting…it is so beautiful. The composition is amazing!
Thank you Karsten!
