Buttercup Field


I wanted to paint a watercolor in a more abstract way than painting the detail of the buttercups - or what we call here in America the California poppy. I prefer a more abstract approach to this type of painting. I used Indian Yellow, Quinacridone gold, Aureolin and a little transparent pyrrol orange for the fields, and my new Daniel Smith kyanite genuine for the foreground rocks and Blue apatite genuine for the distant mountains. Size is 11" x 14".

  2. Your abstract landscapes are fabulous Jean. Despite being abstract they still look so natural.

  3. Astoundingly beautiful, Jean. What yellows--they're heart-stopping.
