Poppy Paintin' Stuff

I thought you might be getting weary of the Folk Art Landscapes so I thought I would throw this in between landscapes. I know, this is a stretch---especially when you don't have anything else to blog!

Poppy Supplies
M. Graham Paints (my favorite)
Black Caran d"Ache water soluble crayon (love these!!)
Dream Catcher brushes (my favorite--but I use others too)
Palette (Bed and Bath Beyond)
Watercolor pencil
Kilimanjaro 300 LB WC paper from Cheap Joe's
sandpaper---this is a technique that Michelle Brown uses. You rub a watercolor pencil over the sand paper and it drops dust that makes great texture

More landscapes tomorrow!

I love your palette plate. This is a wonderful post. It's neat seeing all of the materials an artist uses. And the hints are welcomed too. I never tire of seeing whatever you are creating.
