About the image:

Sometimes timing is everything. Like with the image I used for this National Memorial painting. I'd gone to see and photograph the Poppies at the Tower of London on a wet, grey day. Despite the rain the red of the poppies brightened the scene, even with the somber reverential mood. I was trying to get a sense of the queues and focusing on the umbrellas when I saw this one moving along. I prepared to take the shot with the image central and the lady kindly raised it at the right moment.

The painting was worked on during a demonstration at the Mall Galleries.

The original picture is painted on watercolour paper which has been treated with watercolour ground. The image is created with masking fluid before painting it with watercolour wash covered with clingfilm. Once this is removed the picture is further developed using acrylic inks which are left to dry before the masking is removed to reveal the final picture.

This is a giclee print copy on A4 watercolour paper.
