My French Neighbor's Flowers by Ken Powers

My French Neighbor's Flowers by 

I have a neighbor that has been living in my neighborhood for many years who was originally born and raised in France. She married an American and has lived in the USA for many years and is an avid gardener. She plants fantastic vegetables and is always bringing them by the house to share with me. This flower is growing in many places around her home and is an amazing sight to behold. I painted this piece on Arches 140# paper with Rublev 18th century reproduction watercolor paint and Winsor & Newton watercolor paint. This combination of paint and paper really lends an amazing textural quality to the background. The original is 10″×13.5″ inches in size.

I am a still-life and floral watercolor artist based in the Tacoma, Washington USA area. My work can be found in collections throughout the world as well as on the set of ABC Studio’s television series, “Desperate Housewives.”

    It is hard to believe that it is a painting! I love the fragility of the delicate petals!

  • Thank you Marie! I appreciate you taking the time to look. I was pulling my hair out trying to get soft gradations in color through the petals. I still had fun with though!

  • Thank you Linda! I couldn’t resist these flowers (which I am told are begonias, but I don’t know for sure).
