Today I was feeling inspired by my state’s flower, The California Poppy. Poppies have been one of my favorite flowers for the longest time and seeing the rising popularity of visiting the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve on Instagram has made me really appreciate it’s beauty and of course has sparked inspiration. I created this poppy drawing using my new Winsor and Newton pigment markers, I have to say I’m a fan so far as to be expected (Winsor and Newton is my favorite art supply brand).
I really want to convince Sean to go to the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve, the downside is that it’s four hours from me, meaning we would have to go on the weekend but their website says weekends get packed quickly so there’s another downside because I do not do crowds very well. Actually it’s easily the thing that can make me livid the fastest, so if this were to happen we would need to leave here at 4am in order to get there early but I’m also not a morning person…so great. We shall see because I think it would be awesome to see and bring my DSLR to photo-nerd out!
