Painted Poppies

This is my first real relative success at a loose, flowing, impressionistic painting, admittedly with the inspiration (and instructions!) taken from a book I bought to help me learn some new techniques. In one way it feels all ‘wrong’ to be so vague and incomplete in encouraging a ‘finished’ painting that is little more than random blobs of paint and water roughly placed on a page, but in another it feels wonderfully liberating to have the freedom to escape the restrictions of realistic representation… What fun! ❀

NB The book I took this from is ‘Watercolour Techniques and Tutorials for the Complete Beginner’ by Paul Clark – I think over time I’m going to enjoy replicating these paintings πŸ™‚
