Since my inverted flowers seem to be so popular, here’s another set. These violets were an experiment in several ways: expanding the inversion technique, mixing different textures of paint, and working with washes over an all-black background. In the originals, it seems to give the petals an almost transparent appearance, something I reused in ‘Beauty of the Deep’ to great effect (because how else do you paint a jellyfish).

Enjoy!
