#watercolorfragments is a collection of fine art compositions by Kristy Rice.
T H E T E C H N I Q U E
Kristy combines live floral bits, sculpted paper and brushstrokes on paper to develop richly textured compositions that beautifully fool the eye. Where does fresh floral end and watercolor begin? You decide.

Each composition is photographed to crystallize the moment before the live elements fade. Kristy's #watercolorfragments compositions have come to life worldwide in countless destinations from the wide open Redrock vistas of Southern Utah to the wild strawberry fields of Iceland.

Peony season is sacred around these parts. So when an arrangement Kristy created from her peony garden was losing life, she decided to recreate it on paper. Petals, leaves, stamens, even sprinkles of pollen all became part of this flat arrangement captured forever for you to admire.
