poppies



The peas, beans and lettuce in our tiny back garden all got razed by slugs this Summer, but the poppies escaped. I was especially pleased to be able to paint these poppies in situ as they don't transport well at all. As you can see, the never ending quest to find the right green mix was a struggle. Oxide of chromium, I'm still not sure about you.

  1. These are LOVELY!

    I know what you mean about greens. I know they're probably not exactly the green you saw out in the garden, but it totally works. (I guess this is never an issue I have to deal with because I pretty much only work in black and white).

    1. Thank you. Looking forward to seeing your experiments in a new medium, and perhaps even... some colour?
