Massive Watercolor Paintings “Bloom” on Paper Showcasing the Delicate Beauty of Flowers

Flower Paintings by Janet Pulcho

Who doesn't love the idea of a bountiful bouquet? Well, artist Janet Pulcho creates massive, human-sized blooms that can live forever. Her series of large watercolor paintings capture the ethereal beauty of different flowers, from poppies to peonies.

“I like florals for their aesthetics,” Pulcho tells My Modern Met. “There is enough ugliness in the world and I believe that my paintings can bring something beautiful and inspiring into other people’s life.” In each piece, the flower stems are depicted as floating in the air with a white or black background. This simple composition highlights the complexity of each plant.

Pulcho's attention to detail is akin to vintage botanical illustrations. All of the details that are often forgotten in real-life flowers are magnified and glorified in her paintings so that viewers can map the veins in the leaves and the complex anatomy of a flower's center. She attributes her masterful still-life drawing skills to practicing every day and painting from life wherever possible.
