Flowers, Paint and Type

Inspiration from a very old gardening issue of Martha Stewart Magazine. I kept it because I am such an allium fan. My problem is that I never plant the bulbs when I am suppose to in the fall and I end up buying plants when gardening season comes around.

Decided to paint my alliums with watercolors instead of gouache. I find myself turning to watercolors more and more lately....not sure why...I do find them to be fun, easy, not fussy and unexpected. I feel as if I am sketching in color.

I wanted to play with some script type because the word allium has fun letters for painting with a bit of rhythm in stroke.

I love the combination of type and art.

A variation on the allium watercolor with some line work added to give a different feel to the  of the flower artwork. Not as soft but a bit more modern in feel.
