Larger-Than-Life Floral Watercolor Paintings Capture the Colorful Beauty of Nature

Floral watercolor paintings by Janet Pulcho

Artist Janet Pulcho is best known for her larger-than-life watercolor paintings of flowers and plants. With over 266,000 followers on Instagram, it isn't difficult to figure out why so many people love her work. Her dedication to detail is awe-inspiring, with every petal, leaf, and stem carefully rendered in paint to closely resemble the plant's real-life counterpart. Each piece is a stunning homage to the sublime beauty of nature. Sometimes, her work also features animals, including songbirds and bees. These creatures are brimming with life and look like they could fly off the canvas when you're not looking.

According to Pulcho, some of her paintings are inspired by Renaissance art, including works by household names such as Raphael. The Ukrainian artist—who currently resides in Florence, Italy—describes one of her vibrant paintings of lemons growing on a tree as “Italy in one painting.” Pulcho also posts many Instagram reels detailing her creative process, from time-lapse videos of her painting to videos showing her carefully packing up her completed works to ship to buyers. She recently posted an end-of-year video showcasing some of her work from 2023, which can be viewed below.
