We have noticed an explosion of poppy paintings uploaded on the website recently so we decided to choose it as our ‘Category of the Week’. Besides their association with Remembrance Day, poppies are beautiful summer flowers that we can admire in the fields, in our gardens and in various artworks.
Stella Dunkley in her artwork titled Fields of Poppies offers viewers an original impressionistic landscape painting, featuring a single tree in a field of beautiful poppies. The painting is created in acrylic on canvas in shades of red, green, blue and yellow.
Inspired by the artist’s love of flowers and nature, in her artwork Pink Poppies Blue Sky Irina Rumyantseva creates a beautiful contrast between pink and blue where the poppies stand out. They are very textural, created with palette knife in the artist’s distinctive style.
The artwork Poppies by Judyta Pilarczyk is a traditional still life painting created in oil on canvas. The flowers are delicate and they stand out beautifully against the blue background.
Lesley Blackburn in her artwork titled Poppies in Bloom, creates an impressionsitic version of the flowers suggested by the brush strokes and intense reds. Created in oil on canvas, the painting is very textured, thus giving it a tactile feel.
