This is an Oil painting I did of My Garden Poppies. It would have been so beautiful if they had really all flowered together like this. Sadly however, not so. Instead I amalgamated several weeks worth of My Garden Poppies flowering, using photographs, as they each had their ‘perfect moment’ Once I was happy I had just the images I wanted, I combined them together in a sketch. Almost like arranging soldiers for inspection. Hence I titled the finish painting “Poppies on Parade”!
