A field of poppies in bloom is a glorious sight. Capturing it in ink was tricky but I found a solution using a little-known inking method that allowed me to roll one colour across another without them mixing.
I used rollers and dabbers to spread out the ink then made marks with a cloth and other tools. I built up layers of over-lapping colous by printing serveral times. I incorporated textures by impressing inked up wallpaper and fabric. I also used paper stencils to make the crisp edges. You can watch a video of this artwork being made.
