The good the bad and the ugly of the beautiful poppy and it's associations.

 

For some time I have been attracted by velvet as a surface for my paintings. I use this beautiful surface and colours to create a juxtaposition between the lush velvet, the light it attracts and the mat or gloss of the acrylic paint which is sometimes applied traditionally with a brush and sometimes used  impasto to create more texture and depth.


The original work has a 3D addition with raised portions on the painting as shown.

The work is signed on the back in the following way:
