Poppies on Paste Paper

These Poppies on paste paper that was in my stash just waiting for something. It is really an interesting piece of paster paper so please do a close up. This is acrylic and I must say I felt like I was out of practice and kept reverting back to watercolor techniques. That's ok if you are using acrylics as watercolor but in this case that was not by plan. I will adhere it to an 11 x 14 Ampersand board and maybe put it into the ReddiArts Show in March.

Great work Martha! I love the details in the background. How you you make your picture enlargable (such a word?!). I can't figure it out on my blog.

Oh this is so very pretty. I love the background and the flower stems. They look like they'd be prickly when touched. Such detail...well done!
