Artist's description:

A typical autumn scene, the left over heads of the brilliant colourful poppies. I love the round sculptural form of poppy heads and I wanted to show the tonal contrasts to this scene, with the brilliant light heads against the dark green leaves. The oil painting has a mixture of textures in it from thick impasto palette knife work in the dark shadows to the thinner drips and dribbles - giving the painting a loose and lively feel.

This original painting is mounted and shrink wrapped, ready for framing under glass.

Peter Keegan is a professional artist living and working in Buckinghamshire, UK. Working in oils, Peter follows traditional techniques but uses them in a way to depict the scenes he meets in a modern and original style. His aim is to always create a painting or drawing that reflects the subject's likeness and personality, as well as capturing those special elements which make the subject truly "them". Peter also paints and exhibits figure paintings, local landscape and floral scenes inspired by his studio surroundings at Claydon Estate.
