What a beauty! The form and the colour of the flowers are exquisite. A joy to paint. I got my sample from the collection of Nezahat Gökyiğit Botanic Gardens, Istanbul. This was also the first time I saw this species. In the following year, I had a privilege to see this beauty in the field, growing in an area facing Hasan Mountain. Endemic to the centre of Anatolia.
All illustrations are painted in watercolor on Fabriano paper, 300 gsm. I still have an old batch of my favourite paper, Fabriano 5! I always work from live specimens and with scientific support from experts in the species. Plants are drawn and painted life size. Paintings will be sent with a certificate with your name. The prices include postage.
If you would like to have a closer look, the original paintings can be seen at Evin Art Gallery, Istanbul.
