The poppy painting will make a beautiful addition to your creative portfolio, or to your wall art collection.

These beautiful flowers are always on trend in decor world.

I love poppies and creating this class was such a joy for me. I hope you will like it, too.

In this class I will explain step by step how to draw and paint poppies in 3 different styles: 

  • in a loose painterly style  
  • in traditional realistic looking style
  • using fine liner and watercolor

Also, we will do a quick study to understand a poppy flower and its details and will mix colors for our beautiful illustration.
