You make it sound easy Thalia! Fabulous flowers, wonderful colours.

Vivid and beautiful.


I love what you have done with the textural centers of the poppies. Great sketch and wonderful composition Thalia.

Just wonderful Thalia. The fresh, spontaneity and loose style gives these poppies extraordinary animation. Absolutely love them.

Beautiful example of how to paint loose watercolour Thalia. Lovely.

I agree with all the comments above Thalia-superb!

Beautifully painted

Makes an impact, Thalia, nice and loose and full of 'Poppy'.

Really like this, Thalia

Thank you for such really kind comments CAJones, Tessa, Lewis, David, Nancy, Heather, Carole, Jim, Gina, and Yoko. I do so appreciate your helpful comments

Thank you very much, Willie, yes very 'poppy'! Thanks Eileen and Maureen. I feel i have to paint more flowers... I love painting them and watching them move in my watercolour!

Really vibrant Thalia !!

You deserve all the good comments - this is a lovely free picture. I wish I could paint like this!

So striking Thalia, I like it very much.

These are beautiful Thalia

Thank you so very much, Audrey, Fiona [from what I've seen of your work I'm sure you can!!] Carole and Rachel, really appreciate these comments!

Excellent representation of poppies - love the loose use of colour Thalia.

I love this style and the colours are so vibrant, DAS,

A beautiful loose and fresh painting.

Hang on Studio Wall

These poppies were picked 6 days ago and are still fresh looking...most unusual. I don't normally pick wild flowers, particularly poppies as they are so fragile. I painted these on a scrap of Saunders Rough, a touch of gouache for the pollen, and a few strokes of fine liner ink just finished them off.
