#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.

White peonies, ranunculus, David Austin roses, Pieris Japonica and Queen Anne's Lace were leftovers from a bouquet Kristy received years ago. She was intent on preserving its likeness somehow and so became this first bouquet style #watercolorfragments composition.
