Poppies are one of our most loved wild flowers.
They come in such joyful colours, and have such pretty petals, with their characteristic crinkly crepe paper texture.
It’s always such a delight to find them growing wild and watch them dancing in the breeze.
In this mini class, I show you the process I followed to paint a red poppy, building up that crepe paper texture in the petals.
I hope you’ll celebrate the beauty of this beloved wildflower by giving this Red Poppy painting a go.
If you enjoy painting it, you can also find a mini class on painting an Orange Poppy, which has a more complicated petal arrangement, and also a mini class on how to paint the very complex centre of an Oriental Poppy.
I’d love to hear how you get on if you try this red poppy, so let me know in the comments below. And if you enjoyed the video, do leave me a message. I love to read them!
