Purple Poppy Panorama 100x32cm


Purple Poppy Panorama 100x32cm Oil on board using the palette knife. Framed size 108x40cm, price includes ivory frame.

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 together in a wide panorama of purples! Thick impasto paint gives strong direction to shape and line, and lots of red and yellow explodes onto the canvas, as bud and flower burst open.
