Original watercolor botanical painting: “Common Violet”

Watercolor 8″ X 10″, 2019

The Common Violet (Viola sororia) is one of my favorite wildflowers, so this piece was a delight to paint. The bright purple color and delicate, nodding shape of this sweet little flower bring a breath of fresh air in springtime fields and meadows. It does not keep well as a cut flower, but you can enjoy its beauty in your own home every season of the year with this original piece of art!

This listing is for an original unmatted and unframed watercolor painting.

Paper measures 8″ X 10″ (20.3 X 24.5 cm) to fit in a standard frame.

It is painted on 140 lb (300 g/m2), acid free, archival quality cold press watercolor paper, using high quality watercolor paints. The painting is finished with a coat of spray varnish.

This piece is signed with a monogram just below the image, and bears the title, date and artist’s name on back.
