Flower in Flight Acrylic

hello everyone
its been blowing a gale here for a few days so i thought i would have ago at a modern painting for my son who has recently re decorated his living room (the wall paper they have has large modern purple poppy flowers on a feature wall) this is a small canvas 10"x 12"
i used the modeling paste to add some detail to the center of the flower and different shades of Purple Acrylics a touch of  black for centre and highlights of silver mettalics to the raised areas on centre all done on a pale grey plain back ground. its waiting to be varnished  i want it to be completely dry.....

 the inspiration for this painting  came from a bird feathers that was flying around on my garden table the other day  as it whirled around it looked like a flower a big thank you to the bird that lost that feather lol.
thank you for popping by today
