Poppies in a Derbyshire garden. A bit more thought and time than a sketch, less trouble and strife than a finished work. The teeming life – see the snail in one flower, the spider in the other flower and the tumult of colour was quite something to draw. Very intense in the bright sunshine.

These will be framed and put in the house, so the poppies will be in bloom forever.

A slightly more stylised version with concentration on the diagonal.

Even more sparse, plus the mark making is becoming more like handwriting; OK, the flower is not a Poppy!
Very these are happy diary entries of being out of London, in a beautiful garden and drawing intently in-between family outings.
