Pastel & Acrylic on rag card 37 x 60 cm

This painting started as an experiment to find the best way to show the glow of the back lighted poppies, using a dark backdrop. Watercolours were not suitable so I tried acrylics with pastels on top, and this proved successful. Then I decided on the spur of the moment to carry the stems over the matt surround; this created a unique eyecatching effect which well suits contemporary decor.
