HOW TO PAINT RED POPPIES IN WATERCOLOUR
RED POPPIES
FIRST STAGE APPLICATION


Application of the basic washes.
This should be quick using as few strokes as possible to cover any area being worked on.
Planning the painting:
Mentally paint the picture before proceeding - analyse the source picture above - and be aware of the colour mixes you are about to apply to each area, try visualising the result. Will the brush you are about to use carry enough colour - is the mix strong or weak? Try it out on your - trial pad!
