Poppy in acrylics

Originally I had a yellow /green  mottled background for this one and decided that I  didn't like it so I ended up painting over the background with white. It made the background rather interesting as some of the original background colour shows through which I rather like.

Poppy measures 8 x 8 inches and is painted on Colourfix Smooth Paper.
