Nouveau Red

Nouveau Red is a ruffled red poppy and bud from my garden.  This variety of poppy has numerous curly  petals in the center that give it substance and character, with a few larger single petals around the perimeter. The fat bud bobs gracefully in the breeze as it burst open, revealing its red treasure.

Tissue paper beauties...

Kim...this red on red pops right off the page. Can't get enough of it! Love all that energy and beauty and the way the bud curls around and pulls the eye right back into the painting. Fantastic work!
