Sparkling Poppies

11x6 watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press paper that was used as a backing sheet for larger works; it has acrylic marker on it as well as watercolor.  Yesterday when I painted this it was a quick pencil sketch then adding warm colors such as Grumbacher red, transparent pyrrol orange, Halloween orange, permanent rose, Taylor's pink flamingo, quinacridone coral, and gamboge to poppy petals.  Splatters were already on the marked paper.
