Average review
I tried this tutorial twice. They came out okay but I wasn't too happy with my version since it didn't look like Pat's beautiful painting. My watercolor instructor said "Nancy you didn't leave any white on the flowers" The instructions didn't say to and I thought with the white background that would be enough white but I do think I should have left more white on them as the petals all looked the same. I may try it again at another time and see if it looks better than the previous two tries. Nancy

I love, love, love red poppies and when I saw this tutorial for watercolors, even though I use Alcohol Ink, I knew I had to purchase. The tutorial is so incredibly helpful! Thank you Pat for sharing your talent and helping the rest of grow our skills!
