Papaver somniferum


In the search of seedpods for the book, I was lucky to come across this dry species in Denver Botanic Gardens, Colorado. A wonderful example to tackle for its shape, form and texture.

All illustrations are painted in watercolor on Fabriano paper, 300 gsm. I still have an old batch of my favourite paper, Fabriano 5! I always work from live specimens and with scientific support from experts in the species. Plants are drawn and painted life size. Paintings will be sent with a certificate with your name. The prices include postage.

If you would like to have a closer look, the original paintings can be seen at Evin Art Gallery, Istanbul.
