On Saturday, the sun appeared, adding delightful shadows and wonderful light effects to the texture of the poppies. Of course that also added to the challenge of capturing the color before too much time had passed and everything had changed! Here’s a few photos of this particular poppy and my pastel painting on the watercolored canvas.
