This watercolor painting was inspired by the flowers growing in my garden. When the plants bloom they add very colorful and striking element to the garden. They are so exotic and interesting that I had been planning to paint them for a while. The new batch of bird of paradise flowers were so profuse I had to paint them immediately. I also included other plants that grow here in Florida to create a decorative composition. I had the perfect Windsor and Newton 300 pound watercolor paper. It took layers and layers to achieve these vibrant tones. This high quality paper kept the richness and brightness of the paints. I loved working with both this paper and the paints. The paper is deliberately torn at the edges creating an irregular line. The work can be framed wither showing these distinctive edges or they can be covered.
