Everyone loves poppies! This is an almost abstract view that caught my eye and imagination one day whilst walking the dog.There was a whole field of poppies, aen mass and I couldn’t get home fast enough to paint them!
I certainly had a fantastic time painting this with mixed media, using a variety of media, water colour, gouache, acrylic and oil pastel to build up a feeling of depth, of being in a deeply wooded area, which was where I found many of the shapes used in the painting.
Padstow Harbour is so very well known for its fish restaurants that I thought a view of the nets and fishing paraphernalia to be seen when the tides’ out and all the ropes are trailing in the bottom of the harbour. I have given the impression of a busy scene but have been very selective about what I have drawn the viewers’ attention to.
