Working from actual plants as references, these watercolor paintings are accurate depictions. Whether I'm painting or nature printing, the botanical elements in my compositions are always true to life. I make sketches and take a series of reference photos in case the flowers don't last over the time it takes to complete the painting. When working with exotic botanicals, I have to search my resources. Or, if working from one of my own garden plants or indoor orchid plants, I must wait for them to bloom!
