Paintings # 43, 44 and 45 - Poppy Frenzy

The winter rains in Arizona have brought, and are bringing wildflowers galore.
Poppies are the ones that everyone loves and will travel miles to see a hillside of them.
I got inspired to paint.
This first one is all wet-in-wet with a few lightly defined petals.
Then I moved on to the next one.
Even more definition.

This is the last one with a combination of techniques I tried above.
The light in it is purely accidental but I like it.

I'm not sure my poppy frenzy is over yet.

Oh, Teri, these are all lovely! I love your choice of color and the techniques you used. The huge clumps of poppies that just grow along the roadside everywhere in Western Europe of one of my favorite sights---you have captured the essence of these~~
