Poppies watercolor. Blossom is a painting full of life. Glorious red blooms jump off the fine art paper of this poppy flowers painting. Yet they virtually dissolve into an atmosphere of a blue watery freshness. Their transparency speaks of the renowned wet-on-wet watercolor technique.
The poppies as the key subjects in the painting represent nature’s glory and goodness. They are portrayed with the effortlessness of the impressionist style, a skill clearly owned by a contemporary artist, Nadezhda Bogomolova. It implies a fleeting glimpse of the subject interpreted in a subjective style, the legacy of Monet and Renoir.
This original floral watercolor painting is done on durable watercolor fine art paper 300 lb cold press. The Arches mark is from France. It’s perfect for wet-on-wet application. The high-quality material is prized by painters around the world.
Bogomolova has moved the watercolor brush about the paper with ease. It is difficult to do what she has achieved: a loose watercolor painting without rigidity. Never a trace of muddiness or opacity. It is pure color dancing before the spectator’s eyes.
Flowers are commonplace enough, but in master’s hands, they are unique and fresh. The poppies explode with emotion given the vibrant shades used. There is another amazing poppies painting of poppies glory
The central focus of the poppies watercolor composition is on the soft, transparent petals. Each one is part of the overall intensity. Red is so sensuous and alive that the emotional impact is one of passion and spontaneity. It has a profound effect on the senses.
It is a bold and lively rendering suffused with charm of the natural beauty of a lovely flower. The effects of light and shadow play across the surface as they modulate the variegated forms. While clearly recognizable, the flowers become abstract shapes in themselves, revealing Mother Nature’s underlying structure. Cézanne knew this well as does Ms. Bogomolova.
