Poppy 1

Lovely vivid colours, you're certainly making coloured pencils your own.

Very accomplished work.

Gorgeous shades of red Margaret, there's something about poppies that are just wonderful to paint, I've just taken some lovely pictures this morning of oriental ones, if you want any to copy, I can put them on the forum for you, Linda

Beautiful, Margaret. You get wonderful depth of colour from pencils.

Thank you Lewis, David and Seth for your very kind comments. Thank you Linda, I would love to have a copy of your photos, thank you for the kind offer.

Will post them on the forum Margaret for any one to have a go 😀

Beautiful glowing colour Margaret. My poppies are past it now :(

Like Carole mine are past it and for the first time in a long time I never attempted to paint them. Wish I had now after seeing this, it's gorgeous.

Nicely done....lovely strong colour...

Lovely illustration Margaret.

I think you've got it too Margaret. This poppy is gorgeous and it doesn't look like coloured pencils

Lovely poppy in such beautiful colours well done Margaret

Love the intensity of the colour. Nice one.

I'm thrilled with all your very kind comments, glad you like it. Many thanks.

Very well observed Margaret, you should be pleased with this one.

There are some stunning flower paintings on the gallery today, which I am going to put a stop to when I post my effort! Lol This is terrific Margaret, it has a velvety softness to the petals....gorgeous.

Gorgeous vivid colouring Margaret. Really beautiful.

Beautiful Margaret, as always, love the colour.

Wonderful colouring and details Margaret. Well done.

Beautiful well done Margaret

Many thanks to you all for your great comments.

Margaret, I've just caught up on your paintings while I was away, I like them very much but am just leaving the comment on this one. I did like your buildings, good for you getting out of your comfort zone. I think they worked well.

A lovely painting. I love the colours and textures.

The colour dances....lovely.

Poppies, one of my favorites. A nice picture.

It's always a challenge to paint poppies and I like yours because of the smooth and tender textures and shades.

Love the colour in this painting

By George I should say you do indeed! Very beautiful and vibrant color Margaret.

Lovely vivid colour Margaret, and Poppies are my favourite flower,...well done!....

Great painting of a Poppy - lovely vivid colour.

12"x9" Bristol Board and Coloured Pencils. This is the first time I've been really satisfied when doing flowers in coloured pencil, something seemed to click - as Henry Higgins said in My Fair Lady "By George I think she's got it".

About the Artist
Margaret Beynon

March 2019 I am self taught, reading from books and watching dvd's and of course YouTube. Watercolour painting was my first love and then I moved on to coloured pencils which I like very much. I have just started using acrylics which are a very different medium but so far I'm enjoying using them…
