Whitegarden at Longwood by Yvonne Pecor Mucci

Painting florals in watercolor is a very popular subject which gives the artist and the viewer great pleasure.  Keeping them light and loose is a difficult thing to accomplish.  The branch was rotated and the background was kept out of focus to keep the viewer involved with the blossoms.

Longwood Gardens is a beautiful place to go for a walk.  There are endless subjects which make beautiful paintings.  I have a great many photos of flowers and trees which would take a lifetime to paint. I especially enjoy painting flowers during those gray winter months.

Once you have your photos and sketches, it is great to have a live cutting of the flower you are trying to capture.  Your eyes are much better than a camera lense at capturing complex details.
