Check Out An Excerpt from Splash 12 As Laura Wilk Discusses Her Vision Behind Purple-Hearted Peonies:

I used to paint on silk and loved to watch the vivid dyes flow and mingle on the silk's surface. Thirty years ago, I discovered that the same luminosity could be achieved on paper with transparent watercolor. I am particularly enamored by the gorgeous colors and graceful shapes of flowers. But their delicate beauty can be surprisingly hard to capture. Tree peonies flaunt many-layered, pink tinged outer petals that contrast dramatically with their complex, deeply hued interiors. I work from photographs and life in my studio. Masking the lighter details in the centers, I then go in with as many as thirty layers of transparent color to achieve luminosity. The edges are then blended and softened, to help the viewer glide over the neutral-tinged outer petals, a light on the golden stamens, admire the greenish carpeled crown, then plunge into the purple magenta depths.

In Splash 12 You'll Discover:

  • Work from 120 top watercolor artists
  • Artist-to-artist advice for making others stop, look, and enjoy the view
  • Captions offer insight from the artists themselves, who share the approaches they used to bring their visions into focus

Here are Just a Few Artist's Interpretation of Artistic Vision:

Artistic vision comes from seeing with your eyes and feeling with your heart - Donald W. Patterson
Painting is a dance between controlled and anticipated marks, and random surprises. - Deena S. Ball
