Im still working on this image. Acrylic paint, poppy leaves, oil pastel on rice paper. I still need to add beads and baubels and perhaps some wax. The white areas will be removed, the top will be curved.
First came this sketch in my sketchbook. For once, the sketch was a precursor for the larger work!
An earlier version/layer of the top painting. I am thinking I should switch away from this flimsy rice paper. Maybe paint on unstretched canvas or something. Not sure.
