I had some fun with the poppy spree this week, mainly because I shared it with my 10 year old daughter, Audrey.
Audrey is ahead of me on the watercolour front as she has done it in art class at school. I never took art at school, really wish I had now but I was going to become a mad scientist and did all of those subjects instead. I achieved half of that mad scientist dream (shame it wasn't the scientist bit).
I have carefully studied the poppy posts on flickr and I think I am getting the gist of how watercolour should be applied. I spent some time last week practising, with most in the what was I thinking pile. Here are some of the better ones.
On the weekend I sat outside on the patio with Audrey and we had a wonderful little painting session. Here is Audreys gorgeous poppy field.
