Weekly Sketch – Balcony Poppies – 15/07/2013

I have been growing poppies on my balcony; I just love the way the seed head develops, such fun little rattles. I have had it in mind for a while to make a reduction, perhaps multi-plate linocut of poppies; describing their shape and movement, from flower to seed. Here are some ink sketches, just trying to formalise the shapes in a graphic way that will lend itself well to lino cutting.
