Abstract Camellia

It was mid February last year when I posted a photoshoot I did of our two camellia trees and two camellia bushes in full bloom. I just finished the attached art prints inspired from that shoot.

I created these prints using an abstract watercolor technique to replicate the brilliant colors of the blooms and clean ink lines to the define the petals, leaving a vibrant contemporary look.

Camellia Blooms In Pastel

Last winter, I shared a number of photographic captures of camellia blooms from our trees and bushes.  Each bush or tree is a different variety giving us a mix of colors and types. Doing some yard work this week, I saw that buds were forming on the camellias in preparation for this winters bloom. Today I wanted to share a couple of art prints I created using that photo shoot as an inspiration and template for some digital art.

I have attached two prints I created using a pastel chalk technique. To create a little more definition of the petals on the bloom, I used a very thin brush stroke. The first one is a pink bloom and the second one a red bloom and bud.

Camellia Crazy – Photoshoot

I was working with some new equipment this week and decided to test some things out with a quick photo shoot. I didn’t get any further than our front and back yard. This time of year Camellia’s are in full bloom and the house we have in Los Angeles happens to have a few mature Camellia trees. I have always admired the blooms from our daughters garden here in Los Angeles. This is the time of year they come into full bloom and they do make for great macro shots.

The first picture gives you a feel for the various stages of bloom the trees are in at this time of year. You can see buds from the formation stage through the various stages of opening up including full bloom.

Camellia One

This bloom is just opening up and as you can see is a bright red blossom. This bloom comes from a neighboring tree to the one above.

Camellia Two

From the same tree as picture number two, red blossom fully opened.

Camellia Three

A completely different tree with soft pink blooms.

Camellia Four

End of day sunlight hitting this bloom….

Camellia Five

Same late day sun, but back to the first tree which has pink and white blooms.

Camellia Six
