Hot, hot day, the blanket’s wool makes marks on my knees as I kneel over the colours. Speaking to me from the field’s centre, the lone poppy shouts loud and red over the chaos of children, the heat and the still blue sky.
Approx. 4" x 6" watercolour on handmade paper.
View from Bishopstone Village, Sussex towards Seaford.
Floated on 11"x14" white mounting board in a cello bag, ready for framing.
