I photographed these vibrant orange poppies growing in my garden. Every year I look forward to their arrival as they burst into a flash of colour here and there, never knowing where they will have seeded from the year before. There is one very strong gardening rule, (Which My Husband has now learned – Don’t weed them out!) In the past I have waited with anticipation, camera on standby, watching the poppy buds swell, to find after a weekend of my husband gardening solo – They’re Gone!! Arrrgh!!!

I think I went into poppy overload in this imaginary oil painting! I wanted to create a landscape of vivid, vibrancy. With a suggestion of an eternal swathe of flowers meandering gently into the distance, whilst the foreground offers some degree of texture to the flowers and intermingling grasses.

In this oil painting I had the idea of blurring the background down to just allow the main subject to be the sunlit poppy. It is almost as if the poppy is just awakening and still unfurling in the morning sun.

This Still life Oil picture was painted purely for the shadow of the yellow pansy. The flower cast such a strong shadow against the sunlight hitting the terracotta pot, I wanted to capture it.

Another of My Garden Poppy Original Oil paintings. The first impression I got of this composition, was that the Poppy Bud looks shy and awkward, as if it is hiding behind the open ‘Brash’ Poppy flower in front of it. That is the reason for this picture’s title!

This Watercolour picture of Poppies was done from my garden, where the Wild, Orange Poppies nestled happily within a carpet of fresh blue Forget-me-nots. The thin papery texture of the flowers allows to sunlight to almost pass through.
