Red Pops – Quickpaint


“Red Pops” watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 11 x 14)

“Red Pops” was yet another tough quick paint for me. Besides it only being a 2 hour window for painting and framing, it had to be 90 degrees in town. I found a bit of shade and a few red poppies and gave it a go. Luckily before I had my paper stamped I found my palette missing, quick trip home and I was good to go, or so I thought.

2 hours goes quick, I was just about running up the street with my framed painting to make the time cutoff. So I lived to paint another day at the Cedarburg Plein Air competition! Eventually I will master these quick paints! Till then, they are memories which make me laugh, roll my eyes, and cringe at the same time!

  1. boy….your comment “they are memories which make me laugh, roll my eyes, and cringe at the same time!” resounded within me! sometimes it is an absolute joy and then other times close to tears and mostly I gravitate between the two. 🙂 your poppies turned out very well.

    • Thank you, you are too kind. All we can do is take a deep breath and paint! Let’s hope the next one is better!

    I love these Red Pops! Your agony paid off big time.Nan 😎🌴👣

    • Thanks, you would have had a good laugh at all the shenanigans leading up to turning it in. Also managed to spill all my water in my palette and the easel decided to collapse half way through!
