Field of Red

A larger version of field poppies...this painting is half of a full sheet the other way...so 11"x30". I like trying new sizes and shapes of paper..it makes you think about your composition even before you start putting your brush to work!

Dear Annelein,
...oh...breathtakingly...BEAUTIFUL!! I admire you. You tamed slippery watercolor paint for a big work. Thank you for sharing the wonderful work.
Kind regards,

Looks like poppies are your favorites aren't they. I love the fresh look and transparent petals. Wonderful watercolor! Thank you Annelein, Irina

Absolutely a stunning piece, Annelein. Maybe because the Wizard of Oz is my favorite movie ever...but I am reminded of the field of poppies..."Sleep...now they'll sleep..."
