This painting was done in Arylic on Primed paper. It measures approximately 16 x 10 inches. I found this picture whilst clearing out my art stuff. I had forgotten I had it and thought it would be quite appropriate to post as we approach Remembrance Sunday in the UK.
It is dated 2004 but unfortunately I cannot remember where I found it, it was probably in a magazine, a card or it is a compilation of a couple of pictures.
The poppy is the British symbol of Remembrance for those who lost their lives in conflicts thoughout the world since World War 1. Most folk in the UK wear a poppy on and in the weeks approaching Remembrance Sunday
It was adopted as the symbol by the British after the First World War when it was noticed that poppies were growing in the fields that had once seen battles rage
Trying to make each poppy different was a bit of a challenge. On reflection perhaps the poppies are a touch too pink whereas they should be a deeper red. However,
I am fairly pleased with how it has turned out.
