After Anne Ophelia Dowden
Anne Ophelia Dowden was a scientific illustrator who lived in Denver during the early 1900’s and really got Botanical illustration started as a recognized art form. She worked in watercolor and did full-plant compositions. I did this lovely orchid after studying her style, and it’s part of my portfolio.
