Rona on Grey, VSW Poppy Fields France


Virtual sketching in France this month, courtesy Annette Morris!

Two images of poppy fields pulled me and I thought to combine them,
One detailed and one a distant landscape.


I masked some areas with Fineline Masking Fluid, and
used Super5 Frankfurt for grisaille undertones.


I am pushing for brighter deeper pigmented watercolors now.

I am a bit unhappy with the middle section of overworked green bushes in shadow;
Otherwise, a good start as I do more watercolors than ink paintings!
