“I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man.” (CHUANG TZU)
This painting was supposed to be a bright red poppy! I have found out that the colour of this mixture of watercolour pencils is not true, so this flower looks more like the opium variety, hence the quote and name. This is called improvisation!
I used Pen and black ink, copper paint, Graphitint, Faber Castell and Staedtler Watercolour pencils on 10″ × 8″ 300gm Imbali acidfree watercolour paper.
