Since 2015 I’ve devoted some time each year to painting a few poppy designs around remembrance time. In previous years the designs have evolved a little, while still following the same basic look, as in these examples.
This year – I decided to take some different approaches. My first attempt is a very traditional design, reminiscent of a Victorian era botanical drawing.
I followed this up with a vinyl junkie project design.
And finally, I gave the poppy a Japanese feel.
Even though the poppy motif in these designs is very similar, each piece is distinctly different, and I’ve really enjoyed shaking things up a little this year. The poppy vinyl will be hidden as part of the free art project.
