Poppies in a Field Painting.

Sometimes I just have to paint a poppy painting. I know it sounds silly but the desire to put down a field of bright red poppies comes over me, and a day or two in the studio is taken over by loud red and green.

"All at once I saw a cloud, a host of RED POPPIES"

I've been trying to analyse why because it seems vaguely irrational. but suspect that this time it's because I've been working on something fairly restrained , and also because the sky is blue, the birds are singing, there's a lawnmower droning in the distance and I feel the onset of summer!
