A BLUE POPPY AND TWO BUDS - 9 x 12

From a zinnia binge to a poppy binge . . . I wonder what will be next?  I still have more blue poppies to get out of my system before I'm done.  And I love those hairy buds!  It was especially fun to paint one with the tissuey blue petals just beginning to poke through.  

For this one I used a softer edge for the outside of the petals.  I think that this, along with the more brown-green of the stems and leaf, made this botanical illustration look more formal and elegant.
