Palm Beach Garden


Cyanotype and Watercolor
12″ x 9″ on paper, surrounded with white 16″ x 12″ acid-free matboard.

“Palm Beach Garden” is an original cyanotype with light touches of watercolor.  It features several plants in my garden that I have magically combined to create a unique plant with full veined leaves and clusters of two different types of flowers.

Cyanotypes are one of photography’s oldest printing processes. The distinctive feature of its prints is its shade of cyan blue, which results from its exposure to ultraviolet light. I have used plants from my garden to block the UV-rays and create unique, botanical silhouettes. Additional chemicals, dyes, and watercolor are added to create a truly one-of-a-kind artwork.
