Poppy Bouquet 2- 28x70cm


Poppy Bouquet 2- 28x70cm Oil on board using the palette knife.

I have been fascinated by poppies ever since I threw a packet of poppy seeds into a large pot on the deck of my studio, and up came the most beautiful tangled display of colour that lasted weeks.

In this painting, the poppy buds and flowers bob and twist into a bouquet! Thick impasto paint gives strong direction to shape and line, and red and crimson explode onto the canvas, as bud and flower burst open.
