Harlan Ritchey

Artist Statement

Flower painting is a very recent development for me. I gained interest in them as subject material when I began using high quality watercolor paints that allow for translucent layers of pigment and color interactions that I couldn’t achieve before. As such, I don’t associate any deep or hidden meanings to the images, although I hope my enthusiasm for exploring color and new techniques transfer to the viewer as a sense of visual pleasure.
