Painting Challenge: Poppies

In honor of November 11 (Remembrance Day, Armistice Day, Veterans Day), let’s fill the group with poppies.

Paint poppies. 

Include the topic hashtag in your Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group post: #poppies

Deadline November 11, 2022, 11:59 pm ET



World War I formally ended at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of November, 1918.  Countries around the world honor and celebrate this important day.

Poppies were the first flowers which grew on the battlefields after the war ended.






For a list of some of my favorite YouTube poppy tutorials, scroll down to the bottom of this post.  I shared some poppy beautiful tutorials by Paul Clark, Karen Rice, Anna Mason, Lets Make Art, and others.

What is the prize?   

Our sponsor this week is Adventurous Art Supply, and they have contributed this awesome travel palette for one random winner.  It is slim, easily toss in your bag, and comes with two different palette inserts.
They have other great travel palettes, palette extenders, even a keychain palette!   And if you make your own books, they have book-binding tools and supplies.
To make this prize even more special, the winner can select colors from my paint collection and I will fill one of the palettes.. winner’s choice!
