Poppies - watercolour on paper

poppies for a Wednesday....

I quite like the pinks in these - of course the real colours were very bright red and orange... I toned them down because I like the softness of the baby pinks on crinkly petals. It was difficult to capture the crinkliness and the hairiness of the stems and bud coverings.
