Long Memorial Day Holiday…

Here are a few pics of the projects I’ve been working on this holiday week.

I love poppies and this one I shot at Wing Haven. Here’s the poppy in the middle of the painting process.

Here is the poppy with the painting completed. Now I have to start the thread sketching.

I also wanted to do some detail paintings of the poppy. As a bud, an opening bud and after the bloom.

A few months ago a friend and I went to Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden (DSBG) to shoot pics of the orchids. They were amazing. Here is one species that I worked on.

Laying down the first two colors.
