Poppies + Fern
SOLD to a collector in Canada
11.5"x18" - watercolor + gouache on Arches paper
These flowers are from my favorite floral shop at Takashimaya in NYC. I always stop in there when I'm uptown for inspiration. I could not resist these bursting buds - like teenagers ready to pop. I will continue to paint them through the course of the week as they morph into adult poppy heads. I like the way the ferns off-set the boldness of the flowers with the delicate filagree leaves.
