Purple Poppy Finished - ish

Another 3 hours or so on this adding in more of the same colours here and there. I've tried to get an accurate scan of the picture colour-wise. This is as near as I can get to the original, although I think it is showing up just a tad bluer than it should. I'm calling it finished now although I know I could go on, there are always things I want to change.
If I were to do this poppy again, I'd do it on white, probably Colorfix, sanded paper and forget the flippin' background! Oh well, onwards and upwards....now, what next?

Hi Janet
Don't be too frustrated about the background - the flower is lovely. Thanks for sharing!

A beautiful piece of work, I love the deep colours. I'm glad I'm not the only one who wishes I had done something differently but then I guess that is how we learn and progress.

Thanks guys! I did get into a tizzy about that background. Like you say though Pauline, I have learnt from it.
