I couldn’t even begin to tell you what type of flowers these are but I did see them in my backyard and thought they would make a nice addition to my latest series. I am learning quite a bit about floral painting as I go along and am finding botanicals to be quite challenging which is a lot of fun. These are painted exclusively with Rublev 18th century reproduction watercolor paints on Arches 140# cold-pressed paper. The texture of the paints made for a very interesting background when it began to settle into the coarse paper.
