Pedantic art communicates

There is such a thing as too much colour, or not the right colour when it comes to art work, particularly in botanical or scientific illustration. Not to mention form, scale, detail etc. Details matter just as much in our daily living as well, otherwise we become a distorted image without definition. Diversity with limits is a good & beautiful thing.

( I was sharing some artistic insight with my daughter regarding light, shade & form last night as we watched some youtube watercolour clips. I took one of her "flatter" images & proceeded to create some depth by changing the composition & introducing some light & shade amongst the colours using the shape fill,outline & effects buttons in powerpoint.)
