"Poppy Mound" plein air watercolor painted on Mount Diablo
Painted on Mount Diablo.
The best poppies I've seen on Mount Diablo in years, the drought allowed to poppies to grow faster than the grasses. This was so much fun to paint! Perfect conditions, sunny in the 60's , no wind and lots of friendly visitors stopping to take pictures. Probably the most people I've ever seen while painting on Diablo .
I made cards of this painting. They are available here:
Here are two in process shots:

Ripples 14 x 12
This is more realistic than usual for me.
I worked on it yesterday and am letting it sit while evaluating that big white area.
I am trying to put more light in my paintings and am wondering if that also means more realism.
