Poppies With Betsy – Plein Air 13 May 2021

This morning we are painting poppies in my yard. Here’s my sketch
My artist friend from Ripley Ohio joined me…a peek at her sketch.
my underpainting…
betsy is working in pastel…laying down her darks and getting color on her panel.
the panel is covered with some color…next building up more colors and details

Poppies are popping…down to the last details
The poppies are coming!!!
I think i’m finished! The camera did a weird light balance thing…let me take a better photo for you all.
Betsy works a lot slower than me. She cropped her panel, and is building up the poppies!
