Poppies and Sunflowers

I finally finished my third big blooms painting!  I have been working on it for some time because I decided to add collage papers to it instead of pastels as I did for my first and second large flower paintings.

Below are progress photos of my acrylic painting before collage:

Once I was somewhat pleased with my painting, I added collage papers that I did on the Gelli plate previously.  I cut them out of my deli printed papers and glued them over my painted flowers with Liquitex gloss medium, paying attention to lights and darks.

On the second one above, I painted over some of the gelli prints that I added to the vase and the background to help blend the colors.  Below is a close-up on the collage at two different stages:


And below is my finishing touches – the one on the right is the completed painting:

You may be wondering what the purple flower is?  Well, I kind of made it up!  I liked the color combination!  Lol!

Happy Creating!  🙂

A Poppy Doodle

Last weekend, I created a loose watercolor painting of Poppy flowers.  I decided to doodle over my painting:

This was the before doodle painting:

Watercolor Poppies - the start

I added some hidden Poppy people and houses in my doodles:
