Anthuriums I find to be one of the more challenging tropical flowers to paint. The appearance of their single heart-shaped petal sometimes appears to be made of a shiny plastic, reflecting light and colors in different directions along their ribbed and rippled surface. I find these flowers fascinating with their perfectly contained male and female structures. This watercolor remains partly loose in style and partly a careful study. The main focus of the painting is on the central anthurium that remains stubborn, clinging to its identity.
