Opium comes from the plant the Opium poppy and is a yellow, sticky substance which grows on the sides of the flower and is then scraped off to produce illegal substances such as heroin. It was commonly used as a drug in the Victorian era, which led to many many addicts. I am interested to use opium in my project to draw from and paint as it looks very beautiful but actually has very negative connotations.
