Water Color Class Update

My ten week class in watercolor technique is almost over. For my first lesson, I brought an image of a back-lit, red poppy that I found on Unsplash.

The reference photo can be found here.

I chose this one because of its simplicity, and because it had a nice set of shadows across the poppy. Today I finished my copy.

I’m pleased with this work, and encouraged to begin painting more challenging subjects.


One of six children, I was raised by a busy mom, who instilled in me a love of fabric. Though I learned to sew and knit at a young age, it was the arrival of my first grandchild that pushed me into action. A long-time knitter, I am now ready to explore all things fiber.
