Poppy Pillar

This was painted yesterday, during the time that my studio was open (I painted the sides of the box canvas in flat, black acrylic, and made a design sketch on the canvas itself, on Saturday). I photographed it this morning because the light was so much better.

I decided to try a vertical format, and selected a few poppy heads, from my source photographs, that I thought would work. I quite like the central poppy stalk' curve - apat from where it goes (too neatly) around the lowest flower head. Hmm. I may yet change that...
