34 x 21 Original watercolor on paper
The sheer delicacy and beauty of orchids needs no explanation. What I love most about Cascade, however, is not only its graphical composition and high contrast, but also the opportunity it affords me to push the "buzzing edges" strategy that I've been including in my recent paintings. If you look closely, the outlines of various elements have been enhanced with brilliant colors. This creates an unusual three dimensional effect. Additionally, I love painting white flowers because they are so colorful. There are more colors within each white petal than first meets the eye because of all the reflection. White flowers are the most colorful flowers I paint.
