A Field Full of Poppies

My sketch to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War One, drawn in black ink with a red watercolour wash.

This 15cm x 15cm drawing I created is now available to buy as either a limited print or the original, with a donation from each sale going to PoppyScotland, a Scottish charity for veterans of the British Armed Forces and their dependants.

The drawing is part imagination, part from many photographs of stunning poppy fields in France. Drawn in black ink fine liner with the red watercolour paint highlighting the striking colour of the flowers. Poppies are used to remember those who have given their lives in battle because they are the flowers which grew on the battlefields after World War One ended.

I have 100 giclee signed prints measuring 15cm x 15cm available for £25 each, with £5 from each sale donated to PoppyScotland. Each print is presented in a mount and clear envelope.

The original (above) is also currently available for £75, with £25 to be donated to PoppyScotland.
