This page is a hybrid - a combination of art that has been created by hand and then scanned into the computer and manipulated to change its appearance.
The scan seems to have darkened the poppy - it is more vibrant in real life.
Sketched with pencil and then ink (wait until your pen is completely dry before erasing your preliminary pencil lines!!! - I learned that the hard way!). Various watercolors of red were added. Some splashes of India ink and a few white highlights finish up this flower.
After scanning into the computer I added the black outline and the great quote from Eleanor Roosevelt.
Linking to Paint Party Friday,
