In the strictest sense, botanicals are detailed renderings of a whole plant, i.e. root system, stems and leaves, that are rendered realistically to inform the viewer. This work, called Bamboo, is an example of my work. It gives both realistic detailing plus it is impressionistic in that it tries to convey the color and tone sense of the plant for a fulller impression. I have been doing a series of these images in 2016 and they were all done on rough grained watercolor paper that is fairly small in size, i.e. 25 x 35 cms. Hope you like the images. Let me know what impression they make. I can be reached by emailing email@example.com.
