Phlox, Bluebonnets and African Daisies

Phlox nestles at the base of the Burgundy Prickly Poppies. The pink flowers are painted with several mixes of Permanent Rose + White. The leaves, made of Pthalo Blue+ Lemon Yellow, are worked around the masses of pink, helping to shape the flowers. Please remember, you may click on the images to view them larger.

Centers are added to the tiny flowers with pure Permanent Rose.

Cobalt Blue + White Bluebonnets pop up in front of the Prickly Poppies. The details of the blossoms are made with the corner of a medium sized Bright (square tipped) Brush. To learn more about the brushes I prefer to use CLICK HERE!

Pthalo Blue + Cadmium Orange + White is used for the star shaped foliage of the Bluebonnets. Next the White “Bonnets” are added.
