Poppies Blue

Poppies Blue


I love poppies and I wanted to create a painting to celebrate the less conventional blue poppy. Poppies are often portrayed in a sombre setting so I wanted to paint them in a more joyful way. 

This is painted on a 20x20.5cm (8x8") wooden, heart shaped plaque.


How did I do it?

I made the background using the 'swipe' technique. I layered fluid paints over the canvas and then swiped a layer of fluid white paint containing a drop of silicone over the top. I then made small puddles of paint for the poppies and gently blew out the petals before adding the stems and flower centres. Once dry I outlined the petals some more with silver paint and brush to make them a little more dynamic.


The painting has 2 coats of clear resin for a glass like finish. There are lots of metallics and iridescent colours in this piece, which colour shift in the light.

    For indoor use only. 

    Do not position in direct sunlight as this may cause yellowing of the resin.  

    To clean, use a dry or slightly damp microfibre cloth. Do not use cleaning products on the resin, in case of clouding.
