White Prickly Poppies

15x22 watercolor collage on 140 lb Saunders Waterford paper painted previously. Reference photos were combinations of white wild poppies I had taken but never used; a big clump of these paper thin flowers grow along roadsides and vacant lots everywhere.  I put small amounts of white tissue onto the paper using matte medium then drew the flowers when dry. Poppy centers contain latex and can be deadly and quite thorny to unsuspecting people or animals.
