Trashy Poppies collage

                                                                             12x12 watercolor collage with ink
This view is showing the applied cocktail napkin over Crescent matboard, adhered with half matte medium/half water ratio, with phone book yellow pages added on top of the napkin.  Finished version (top image) flowers were drawn with pencil and heavy watercolor added.  When dry I added touches of black India ink and let portions of the napkin show.  Total time a bit over 3 hours today.  Since all items used were destined for the trashbin I named it Trashy Poppies; just wanted to see if I could make something from nothing.  This work has now been SOLD.
