Linear Lands Collection: Poppies, Edgefield, Norfolk. Original Oil Painting
Swathes of bobbing red crepe form lacy borders around the field.
" Sometimes it’s the simple pleasures of living in this beautiful county that bring a lingering smile, such as looking forward to the casual, yet dynamic blooming of the wild poppies in June. The impact can be just a single lost flower or the invasion of a whole field swathed in red. But usually it’s a graceful lacing of the field edges - red heads of delicate crepe paper like petals bobbing in the breeze.
This June, on a winding lane from Edgefield, near Holt, there was a particularly wonderful field of poppies - so inspiring I had to paint the view." Jac Scott
An original oil and wax painting by multi-award winning artist Jac Scott. The artist has signed the painting on the back with the title - both visible from the back of the frame. The painting is on a special cradled encaustic board with a 4cm depth.

Linear Lands Collection
North Norfolk with its big skies and undulating vistas specialises in creating wide and sinuous bands of landscape.
There is a rhythmic poetry where bands of interest stretch across the land forming stripes of colour, texture and form. This striping delineates and dissects the panorama leading to an inspiration that explodes across the canvas - broad strokes of emotion and energy captured in paint.
The ancient method of encaustic art was practiced by the Greeks and Egyptians with 2000 year old examples still in existence. Wax and pigments are fused with heat which dries quickly capturing brush strokes, drips and textures. Encaustic art is an all consuming very physical practice.One is seduced by the process of not just applying paint with a brush, palette knife or hands but also the harnessing of heat to energise materials and move the liquids around. The fluidity of the process allows the materials to mix and metamorphose.
