Exotic Flower - Orchid, 2019
Artist: Melrose Tapscott Buchanan
About the Artwork: My inspiration for this series titled Exotic Flowers was my love of Illuminated Manuscripts. “Exotic Flower – Orchid” is a woodblock print with chine colle. I then hand-tinted the image using gold and silver watercolors plus inks. For me much of the magic in this work comes from the subtle touches of gold and silver.
Media: Woodblock print with chine colle and enhancements with gold and silver watercolor and inks
Dimensions: 8” wide by 8.5” tall; Framed size: 14.5” wide by 14.5” tall
