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 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 Hoy Monument. I painted the artworks from a poppy meadow close to the village of Chale which is to the south of the Island. The Pepperpot, officially known as St. Catherine’s Oratory, is a medieval lighthouse on St. Catherine’s Down, above the southern coast of the Isle of Wight. It was built by Lord of Chale Walter de Godeton as an act of penance for plundering wine from the wreck of St. Marie of Bayonne in Chale Bay on 20 April 1313.
