Glow, 9 X 12  Original Watercolor Painting 

SOLD

Materials: Arches 100% Cotton, Cold Press Archival Paper, Daniel Smith Watercolor Paints


I am drawn to the sunlit transparency of delicate botanicals. My goal was to capture the way that light makes flowers glow from within. I chose a cactus flower specifically because of the plant itself can seem harsh - harsh to look at and harsh to the touch. Despite that, in contradiction to its nature, this plant produces a delicate flower that blooms brightly and boldly.
