I'll round out the week with another poppy. I try very
hard to paint my poppies with a variety of colors. It's easy
to get caught up in thinking a flower is a particular color. I
like to push those limits by adding additional colors that might
not be in the actual flower, but make the subject a little more
interesting. We like variety and painting a solid red or orange
poppy would not be so compelling, but throw in some yellows,
purples, alizarin, vermillion, scarlet, violet, rose...you get the picture.
