I have been working on more poppy exercises. The more I use pan pastels the more I love them. Think of it as using paint that never dries out on your palette. I am slowly learning how to use them to their potential.
This one didn't turn out like I wanted. I realize now that I should have put the green background in first and then the misty looking poppies. That is what practice is all about though.
I am happy with this one. I really worked on blending of colors In fact I think this photo looks even better than the original, which I find is usually not the case. All that is left in the course is a final bigger project on canvas. I may leave that for awhile.
