These two watercolor paintings of flowers were created in 1997. The artworks utilize soft pink backgrounds, and deeper rich colors for the flowers and green leaves and stems. Numerous shades of red, orange, yellow, and green were used to create shadows, midtones, and highlights on the flower petals and leaves. This technique also gives the stems and leaves shape and form in the space. The use of watercolor as the medium for the flower paintings also gives them a softer look than crisp acrylics or oils.
