Wild Plantain
22" x 30"
Watercolor
$  1,800.00
 
While painting the wild plantain, I had a breakthrough. Without drawing first, I used my brush filled with luscious paint to carve out the shapes of petals and leaves. With a freedom of brush stroke and color, I captured the abstract patterns that suggest nature rather than copying the plant itself. Dashes of color indicate slivers of light peeping from the dark interior of foliage. This painting initiated a series of twenty painted with the pure abstracted shapes I could make with my brush. I teach this method in my watercolor workshops.
