Have you ever heard of the Eighteenth-century British artist Mary Delany? She began her art career at age 72. She created each piece by cutting and layering tiny pieces of paper on black ink backgrounds. The fine shading and depth are as intricately detailed as a botanical illustration and scientifically accurate as well.
Mary is fun artist to check out and maybe even dabble in her style of work if you’re up to the challenge.
