Red & Gold Poppies   Acrylic inks and watercolour

Really nice painting fantastic colour .

Love the colour combinations Carole, it has a real zing. Which part is done with acrylic ink, just the darks ? And do you apply the ink once the watercolour washes are dry ? Most interested in how this technique works.

Beautiful Carole I will have to try the combination

Poppies on fire! Fantastic painting Carole!

Wow Carole this is in your face . Love it .

Wow - Lovely colours

Thanks so much everyone, really appreciate your comment. It is mainly acrylic ink with watercolour added here and there Sharon, I used them together here. Acrylics are indian yellow, process magenta and flame red, some yellow is w/c cad yellow and scarlet. The dark is sepia with granulation fluid. Really like the strong colour acrylic ink gives.

As every one says "Wow"!! Wonderful treatment of this subject and I love the granulating effect.

Lovely work Carole smashing colour.

What an eye catcher Carole, it's fantastic!

Beautiful colours and interpretation Carole!

Radiant painting Carole!

Wow - very bold and very beautiful, Carole. Those colours jump right off the page at you!

A real fiery start to the day - enjoyed seeing this Carole

Thanks so much Avril, Dennis, Christine, Sarah, Fiona, Thea and Michael for your valuable comments

Lovely. Vibrant. Fiery.

Thank you Kal and Deborah!

A lovely evocative piece. The lost and found edges are beautifully done. Excellent piece, Carole!

Love how you see more and more the longer you look at it!

Thank you very much Seok and Jenny for your kind comments,

I don't know how I missed this little beauty, the colours are so vibrant and translucent. Super work, Carole.
