Some botanical art :)
    #3243210 - 10/11/04 03:34 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Greetings to this forum! I've never been here before, despite the fact that I graduated with an art degree :wink: I enjoy very realistic artwork, and I specialize in plants (and fungus). Here are some examples of my artwork. If anyone ever has need of an anatomically correct piece of art, feel free to let me know :smile:

Peace!  :peace:

A random shroom growing in my greenhouse




A to-scale drawing of my betta:



Sugar Maple:



Watercolor rose:



Watercolor spiderwort:



Watercolor/colored pencil squills:



Tiger lillies I painted for a friend:



A pointalism rose:



And on the lighter side, some digital artwork :wink:



Enjoy!

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
"Fear is the great barrier to human growth." ~ Dr. Robert Monroe

That's some pretty damn good work, there.  Very nice! :laugh:
How do you keep the water colors in the lines like that?  Is that some sort of magic they teach you in art school? 
Which skool did you graduate from? 
Vey nice!

Hehe, you're all too nice!  :laugh: Thank you  :thumbup:

I graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in Biological/PreMedical Illustration and Botany (read as I can draw plants well). Through my botany I discovered horticulture, and through that mycology, which is why I'm here :smile: Oh the decisions, what grad school to go to!

I keep my watercolors 'in the lines' by painting incorrectly! :wink: Traditionally, you would get a phat piece of super expensive watercolor paper, tape it to a board and get the whole page wet- that is how you get the flowing colors that watercolor is known for. I still use watercolor paper, but I prefer the pads, where the edges are already held down for you. I very very lightly sketch the plant (or whatever) that I'm painting, and then I paint it one section at a time. So only one leaf is wet, or one part of stem. It's like having a mini canvas, and you can make all the crazy watercolor stuffs happen while keeping the colors confined in a small space. If two wet edges touch they will bleed together. Good for tight renderings, which is what I like best :smile:

sorry that was so long, you're all wonderful!  :heart:

Water colors in my mind are the least patience taking form of art there is. They are very forgiving in a way.
