I’ve had a go at sketching poppies before now, and having enjoyed the challenge, I revisited it earlier this Summer. I shared these sketches on Facebook and my friend Laurie Ruettimann suggested I start an Etsy shop to sell some of my art. I followed Laurie’s advice, one of these poppy sketches has since been sold, the other one I gave to Laurie as a thank you for the Etsy idea.
I subsequently painted a single poppy, this time in purple. This one has sold to a friend in New Zealand.
