Here’s the first try, sketch and all. What a mess. I took my time sketching and then I messed up. So I took another sheet and painted. No sketching just painted. Mixed up some color. What a masterpiece. I still need lots of details but this is great. The color and poppies in three growingContinue reading “Painting Poppies”

I originally painted blue hearts in the bookContinue reading “Do-overs”
