The vases are sketched with colored pencils and the pressed botanicals are inserted to create the realilty of placement in the vases. Pressed Forget-me-Nots, Goura or Painted Feather (aka Indian Feather) and the tips of the Nishiki Willow bush were used in the sketched vases.
The Watering Can artwork is a combination of pressed flowers from the garden and a personal photograph of the watering can. Pressed flowers are inserted into the lip of the watering can.
More mixed media photograph & pressed floral artwork may be seen in artwork featuring photographed birds in and around my garden.
