These simple drawings by artist Judy Kaufmann bring to mind the botanical illustrations of the 1700s and 1800s. Back then, scientists painstakingly drew each part of flowers in order to catalogue them. That was, of course, in the days before the camera.

Judy Kaufmann draws botanical illustrations, not for a scientific catalogue, but as a way to draw attention to what we would otherwise never look at. The pastel-colored backgrounds in each of the botanical illustrations highlights the intricate details of the flora.
