lotus

 

Sacred lotus! I recently completed this piece as a commission for two lovely clients. The piece is large at 22" x 30" and 100% genuine watercolor. This is the largest watercolor I've ever painted and its size brought on its own set of challenges; it was tough to hold the paper at an angle for flat washes, the paper really wanted to buckle, and wet paint had more room to roam. In the end though, I'm happy with the scale of the painting and may just have to try a few more at this size.

I love your realistic interpretation of the beauty of plants, thanks for sharing. I have a blog about plants, and I'm going to highlight your work in my "as seen through art" collection.
