Artwork description:

I painted this picture for the final round of the Botanical Battle on Instagram - the largest online botanical art competition. Out of 150 participants (who passed the selection), only 10 made it to the final of the competition, and I was among them.

The task was a botanical illustration on the "winter" theme and I chose Schlumbergera, it is a plant that blooms in December, therefore it is called a Christmas cactus. It fascinated me with its bright, bizarre flowers, similar to fluttering butterflies.

This detailed realistic illustration is an original, one of a kind hand drawn artwork. It was done with lightfast professional watercolors on archival acid free watercolor paper.

Painting is ideal for a home decor or it will be a perfect gift to botanical art lovers.

It is 16.5 inch (h) x 12.5 inch (w) (this size perfect fits for standard frames like Ikea) and is painted on extra white hot pressed Saunders Waterford watercolour paper (300 g/m2), which means that it has a very smooth surface

Each item will be packaged carefully to ensure a safe shipping. It is sent to you in a plastic sleeve and shipped flat inside a sturdy cardboard envelope. It will be shipped by standard Russian Mail with a tracking number. Other options of shipping is also possible but shipping will be more expensive

It is not mounted/matted, if you would like any advice on framing please let me know

Please note that colors may slightly vary due to different display settings

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! Please feel free to ask if you have any questions
