This picture has a candle as a single source of light which is placed behind a marmite jar filled with water and then has a poppy placed therein. This candlelight source shines upwards under the poppy and is refracted through the glass and water to give a fascinating pattern of colours and shapes. The air bubbles that appeared during the painting of this picture on the poppy stem and jar surface inside are highlighted by this lightsource.
