August Gladiolas and Poppies

Poppies and Gladiolas are the flowers for August birthdays and I think that bright vibrant colors of the flowers are a perfect match for the hot August days. This is a watercolor painting I made featuring both flowers and I used almost pure pigment to get the bright shades I was wanting.

This is another watercolor painting of red oriental poppies that I recently made into a greeting card. Really like the bright happy colors. When the paint is wet I like to let the oranges, yellows and reds blend together on their own to see what they will do.
