A Floral Feast

The gardens on the East End are spectacular this year. A wet spring followed by hot and sunny weather has worked its magic. The hydrangeas are especially amazing.
Taller than ever with copious blooms.
Hydrangeas are not the easiest flower to express in paint.
Eva Iooss has captured them in watercolor with a delicate touch.

Eva Iooss paints on old manuscript paper, water color paper and natural vellum. She also works in oil and mixed media. Her love for nature was nurtured in her Holland birthplace. After studying fashion illustration in Manhattan she moved on to study botanical art. She received a certificate of botanical painting from the NY Botanical Garden.
