It’s been a while since I did an art blog and it’s been an even longer while since I did one of my pastel poppy drawings (it’s actually been years! I’ve been mostly painting in acrylic these days).
I missed using pastels so I decided to do a BIG poppy artwork and photograph the process so you can glimpse it taking shape.
Here are the photo’s (it took me close to 2 months to finish — I certainly took my time! lol):
Stage 1: It begins…flowers are laid out first, then I fill in the background pattern
Stage 2: More poppies are added to the mix
Stage 3: The background is completed and detail has been added to the poppies. I was working outdoors for more light (you can see the famous R62 in the background 😉
Stage 4: It’s finished (and so am I! lol…)
For all you art enthusiasts who simply must have the original — you’re in luck! It’s still available through Saatchi — click HERE or click on picture below (you’ll also find excellent quality prints at Saatchi to suit your pocket and needs).
For those on a tighter budget — no worries — you can get high quality prints (or perhaps you fancy a cushion cover or iPhone skin?) by clicking HERE. An extra large photographic print is under $46!!! There are lots of print options available as well as products and clothing with this design on — there’s nothing more fabulous than wearing the art you love! ❤
