1 Begin by painting the flower heads. Starting in the centre of the pink poppy, apply a pale mix of new gamboge and cobalt blue on a dry base, using the No. 8 brush. Add a little more blue to the mix and apply it while still wet. This will give more depth.
2 Using the No. 10 brush, wet the base of the entire surrounding flower head and drop in a small amount of dilute new gamboge to add warmth and depth to the pink that follows.
