Poppies, Sky, Trees (2017)
A bold, colourful and unashamedly Romantic image. The background was inspired by British pastoralist painters – among whom I would include Gainsborough who loved to place his sitters in grand estates.
This work started with a drawing on my iPad using Adobe sketch, based on poppies that we had in the house.
But from there, via a further study 500mm x 500mm it progressed to this giant and happy image at 1500mm x 1500mm.
This painting is headed to one of our major Embassies overseas after it was purchased by the Ambassador.
