The flower targets on paper present a soft and attenuated visual experience. These watercolor paintings are monochromatic, saturated in the centers and becoming lighter in the outer bands. The paper around the image is left unpainted. The pencil drawing is not erased to reinforce the physicality of the paper, as well as its progression from drawing to painting.
