Mexican Tulip Poppies

“Mexican Tulip Poppies on aqua wall”, ©Jill Rosoff 2011, 6″ x 11 3/4″, framed, $125.00

Another study in contrasting colors, the delicate yellow petals against the aqua wall and the green of the leaves.  The aquas and the greens of the background brought the yellow petals alive on the paper, which are punctated by the stamens, and then there are the stamens that have lost their petals, which shows those lovely pink tips.  A nice pairing with the painting of Mexican Tulip Poppies posted in September of 2010.  Thanks to Lea from my workshops who showed me these flowers in her garden and let me take some home to paint.
