I created the randomness of the flowers with flicking and spattering, I dropped colours onto each other to create slightly surreal flowers. The painting was finished with sparkle and mediums to create texture and shine
This original painting depicts a poppy field on The Isle of Wight. I painted it as part of a set of three – a triptych – designed to be hung as wall art together. The companion poppy pictures are ‘Chale Poppies, St Catherines Down’, and ‘Chale Poppies, The Pepperpot’ . I painted the artworks from a poppy meadow close to the village of Chale which is to the south of the Island.
Perched high on St Catherine’s Down, the Hoy Monument is accessible only by walking. Built of local stone, it’s also known as the Alexandrian Pillar – 72ft high and capped with a distinctive ball finial. Michael Hoy, a successful Russian merchant, had the monument erected to commemorate the visit to Britain, in 1814, of ‘His Imperial Majesty Alexander the 1st, Emperor of all the Russias’.
