Acrylic paint on canvas.


When I was young we had wild poppies that would spring up in our garden. They always looked so fragile and fleeting to me. I wanted to paint them with delicateness and light. So you can feel the paper like thinness of the petals. Although they come in many colours, I feel red are the most iconic. In the background I have used thick textured paint to give the feeling of an old wall with peeling paint and to contradict the daintiness of the blooms.
