Glow: Or How One Poppy Stands Out in a Field

Art

Glow

A close-up on the blossom of a field poppy

Glow is much stronger realist tendencies, even though all the same colours are being used here.

I took some time to explore how the light plays on these papery petals.

I love the soft, curving shapes and the way the colours wave across the petals. It is a bit hypnotic, I think.

Why this flower – I guess because it is dynamic and elegant and feminine and strong all rolled into one. Not bad qualities to possess, flower or not!

This painting is available in my Etsy shop.
