Poppy Seed Head

It’s been a real pleasure to paint one of my favourite things that grow in the garden, a Papaver somniferum seed head. Spending the time to really look at it’s structure and mix it’s colours, both muted and vivid, has made me appreciate it’s beauty even more. I hope you enjoy the results too.

  1. You have talent! Such a pretty painting! 🙂

  2. captured it to a T. lovely.


  3. Love the off-centered focus and the blurred background. Not only is it beautifully rendered, the perspective takes it out of the norm and draws your interest immediately. The detail in the fan-like top is amazing, Luc!

  4. Reblogged this on Herbology Manchester and commented:
    Today I’ve had a really good chat with the artist Lucy Burscough about future Arts and health pojects and I thought I’d share this wonderful painting of a poppy seed head from her blog.
