Saintpaulia ionantha, African violet

© Copyright Alessandra Kelley

A somewhat wild and anatomized gouache painting of an African violet

This is a gouache (opaque watercolor) illustration of an African violet removed from its soil. It is one of the fancier variants of Saintpaulia ionantha, which normally has somewhat more staid, round, five-petaled flowers.
