Summer of color; blue poppies




On my workdesk today is a sketch for the summer of color challenge.

Neocolor water soluble crayon

My Meconopsis or blue poppy is drawn from a photograph I took recently at Dunvegan castle gardens.
I took loads of flower photographs in the hope they may inspire me for the SOC challenge which runs for six weeks. It follows a colour theme, this weeks colours being, Aqua, yellow and pink.




Aqua, yellow, pink

  11. Hi Morag, I enjoyed browsing through all the latest creations you have done. Fishing on a Plate is wonderful and I love how you pulled from your photos of the colorful village.

    Your beautiful floral sketch is just like your photograph. I think flowers are hard.

    I can't imagine seeing seals while out and about. Extraordinary!

  31. Love Skye, it is a paradise for nature lovers and has an abundance of colour everywhere. Dunvegan Castle has the most amazing views and a magnificent garden. Blue Poppys are so beautiful, i bought some on a Saturday, by Sunday they had been eaten by the slugs, each leaf and stem devoured i was gutted...

    I do remember a lady called Daisy Budge having a lot of images of the beautiful seals for sale.

    Love your drawing, the colours are beautiful and definitely a good resemblance from the picture :-) xxx
