My mother is a photographer and has recently moved her lens from the expanse of the Australian landscape to the intricacies of flowers. How convenient – an on-line image-bank of Botanica at my disposal. Than ks Mum!
Mum’s birthday card to me this year was a print of one of my favorites from her collection – the Radiant Poppy. I decided to use this print for an exercise in using gouache to tint and tone. Can I replicate the almost tissue-like petals and the hundred-and-one stamens?
It’s a work in progress – I’ll let Mum be the judge!
