Pen, Ink, and Watercolor Paintings of Flowers – Japanese Style

My Wendish mother and my Wendish grandmother loved to grow flowers in the yard and cut them and place them on the table in the house. Under their influence, I grew up with a great appreciation of a yard full of flowers and other forms of floral beauty. Unlike the two of them, I did not have a green thumb, but, even at a young age, I had the ability to draw and color flowers of all kinds. Over the years, I have tried to capture some of the breath-taking beauty of flowers by using my favorite technique of combining pen and ink sketching and water-coloring. Here are some of the many “flower” works I have done.
