The SAA Paint A Poppy Challenge

My latest copy of Paint magazine from the Society for All Artists (SAA) came with this challenge, to paint a poppy to commemorate the end of WW1 in association with The Royal British Legion. This is my entry it only 5″ x 5″ painted in watercolour on watercolour paper.  I really enjoyed painting this lovely poppy from one of my own photographs I took from the local hedgerows.
