California Poppies | Sketch Away: Travels with my sketchbook


Spring at all times means California Poppies. However this 12 months is particular. After years of drought, we had distinctive rainfall, making it a superbloom 12 months in California. So I headed to the Fortini Path, simply 10 minutes south of house with Nina Khashchina.

Simply have a look at the bounty of flowers we sat amongst that day!

The day referred to as for blended media, so I simply went at it, layering crayon and gouache over watercolor and ink.

After which I did this fast little piece the place I began off through the use of the solid shadow of the poppies as my composition.

There are in all probability just a few extra weeks once I can catch these orange fields earlier than it will get too sizzling for them, after which will probably be time for the true summer time poppies, the Matilija Poppy.
