WIP - Autumn Rain


I use EBSQ's flower of the month show to usually determine which flower I'm going to do next.  And combined with drawing couples, this is what I have come up with.  I love poppies, but these are unique.  You don't see many pink double petaled poppies here in Iowa.  At least I haven't seen any recently.  Did you know there are blue poppies!?  It was tempting, but I wanted rainy and that's a lot of blue!


First two hours of paint, hope to have it finished today or tomorrow!  :)  There is a general spot I'm not in love with, but hopefully once the poppies get their make over things will be seen differently.

To see the other flower fairies I've been up to visit these links!

Dear Diary - mushrooms
Twilight Lilies - hot pink tiger lilies
Pansy Sisters - purple and yellow pansies

Hello, Sara, great to see how you grow your illustration !!!!.
I searched on Google, but I have not seen blue poppies, I think they are all red.
