Cherry Blossoms, 2017
Artist: Barbara Rizza Mellin
About the Artwork: Pink cherry blossoms cluster on a spring branch; horizontal image on acid-free mat board paper. The smooth coating of the matboard doesn’t absorb the watercolor, allowing the colors to almost float on the surface with added vibrancy. Signed and red chop. Image is matted. For this work, I was experimenting with different substrates. I loved the resulting intensity of color.
Media: Sumi ink & Chinese watercolor on upcycled, acid-free mat board paper
Dimensions: Frame size: 16” wide by 12” tall
Framed: Yes. See photo.
