Paint Flowers


Beautiful flowers? Look a little closer and you'll see these stunning bouquets are actually drops of paint 


At first glance, these incredible images look like still-life portraits of flowers.
But far from being drawn in the traditional way, they are created by photographing fast-moving droplets of paint as they fall through the air.
Artist Jack Long, 53, spends months painstakingly planning and testing each work before capturing them with a high-speed camera.

Glossy finish: Jack, from Wisconsin, U.S., calls the work 'Vessels and Blooms' and says he enjoys working with liquids because 'all the pictures are different'
However, Jack is keen to keep his technique to himself and will not reveal exactly how his pieces are created.
He uses water mixed with thickeners, pigments and dyes. The paint is suspended in air for a split second and he uses an electronic flash to get the moment just right.
 
The images contain a range of leaves, stems, petals and even the pots are made out of paint.
Jack, who calls the work 'Vessels and Blooms', said he enjoys working with liquids because 'all the pictures are different.'
Droplet dead gorgeous: Jack says hundreds of captures are made in testing and then many more during the final stage, with just a very few standing out as the best
