Blooms and Buds

The next bloom has a combination of White, Red/White and Pink/White petals. The first petal is blocked in with some of the white mixes remaining from the Poppy in the upper right of the painting. The Red edges are made with Cadmium Red Deep and Cadmium Red Light.

Red streaks form a “Racing Stripe” on the lower side of the flower!

The next petal is White and Pink so I can use the mixes of Permanent Rose + White left over from the blossom in the upper right of the composition.

To visually balance the flower a petal is extended on the right side.

Stamens in the center of the Poppy are now added.

The buds of the California Poppy, or “Caps”, are painted with mixes of Phtalo Blue + Cadmium Orange + White. Jack always liked to call these “Cone Heads”!

We’re moving right along as Kermit the frog would say! We’ll work on the remaining two flowers in our next session. There will be another video so please come watch. Thanks to all of you for your kind comments on this painting. With BIG HUGS,Mikki Senkarik signature JPEG
