Yep, it's cold -- and since I"m really cold-natured, this recent dip in the temperature has me shivering!!
I've been perusing my photo reference collection and decided to do a few flowers and fruits this week and practice with 'reds' ... so poppies it was!
The 'shadows' of this came out a bit too muddy in the actual watercolor -- they don't look as muddy scanned, I think -- but I know they didn't quite 'do' as I had hoped -- but I suppose, that's what 'practice' is for! LOL
