Poppy Patch – Pasadena – Karen Winters Daily Painting

April 15th, 2008

“Return to the Poppy Patch” 9 x 12 watercolor
SOLD

It’s another walk around the Arlington street poppy garden, but this time in a more decorative, somewhat abstract mood. I abandoned any attempt to be realistic and considered the landscape as a decorative tapestry, with different colors and textures woven through. With some modifications, this might scale up well into a larger painting. But then I’d have to fight the temptation to put in all sorts of fiddly realistic details. Can’t you just imagine Dorothy, Toto and the gang taking a nap back there between the poppies and the irises? We’re not in Kansas anymore. We’re in Pasadena.

  1. How beautiful! Poppies are my favorite flower too. This is really successful – the colors of the poppies just pop out of that beautiful green. Wonderful work.

  2. The looseness of this makes it great fun, the colors in the foreground just seem to and surge and blend! Would love to see you work this up larger and in oil, I think the texture in oil would be interesting.
