Red Oriental Poppy

Red Oriental Poppy (c) Tessa Spanton  mixed media
I used watercolour, acrylic, oil pastel, tissue paper and watercolour paper. The tissue I used made lot of texture which does not fully come across in a photo.

These poppies grow in my garden and originally came from my friend Elizabeth's garden.

This painting has been selected for the

HRH Princess Michael of Kent

on Wednesday 27th June 2012 at 11am

the Show Runs from the 28th June to the 7th July 2012

I will also have prints and cards from original silk paintings in the exhibition.
