Poppy

Jean Royle created this Christmas card design of a poppy in the 1980s. Measuring 4¼” x 3½” she has printed the image in dark green onto a buff coloured paper leaving a broad margin. Details are hand painted in red and a lighter green gouache.  Variations of this design were made by printing onto different coloured papers. The traditional Christmas colours of red and green are repeated in many of her card designs.
