Cortaderia Selloana — The watercolors of Edna Carla Stradioto

The theme of that particular series is Cortaderia Selloana, known as pampas grass. I went on holidays by car to South of Brazil and I discovered fields and fields of rosae pampas grass all over the place. On the wind, they look like plumage and it is like a spectacular ballet from nature. When I came back home, I could not avoid the idea of paint the grass, as many ways I could possible think about them. It was a starting process that last more than four months, I am still passionate about them. ~Edna Carla Stradioto
