Poppies - watercolor


Yesterday I started playing around with my watercolors - it's been quite a while since I used them loose and painterly (in contrast to filling in illustration drawings or realistic painting).

I am absolutely in love with the flow and marks of watercolors and their incomparable transperency - but it is not that easy to paint loosely. 

This image is a part of a larger painting. And this is one of the nice parts of it, some of it just didn't work out. Most of all, due to composition-problems.

I like the linework and flowing paint combined - the lost edges and the spattering of paint. I will continue with another painting - doing my composition work more improved !
