After Anne Ophelia Dowden
Anne Ophelia Dowden was a scientific illustrator who lived in Denver during the early 1900’s and really got Botanical illustration started as a recognized art form.  She worked in watercolor and did full-plant compositions.  I did this lovely orchid after studying her style, and it’s part of my portfolio.
Media: Watercolor, Gauche, and Watercolor Pencil on Strathmore Mixed Media Paper.
Size: 16 x 20 inches
Time 40 hours

You’re going to have people who are going to say ‘Oh, you know like, she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends’ and I think frankly that’s a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love-life, and no one raises a red flag there.
