Artist's Statement

This piece is called "Texturized Poppy Mallow". My inspiration came from traditional watercolor depictions of flower fields, where the smudged effect of the technique creates a completely different texture to represent an otherwise organic and even shiny surface. I developed colored textures using watercolor based on the color palette obtained from the flower, leaves, and structure of the Woodland Poppy Mallow, to create a geometric representation of the flower and forming a pattern.
