Flower silhouette art is a diverse category of art that focuses on the shapes of flowers. These floral paintings display a wide variety of blooms and styles within the constraints of the category. Likewise, the dramatic flower images that are characteristic of this category are rendered in several mediums, from canvas art to photography.
Flower photography is a highly popular medium for flower silhouette art. These works are often in black and white, although there are some works that use color to their advantage. However, since the primary focus of flower silhouette art is shape, many photographers choose a higher contrast image, as seen in the flower photograph, 'Rose and Driftwood' by Ansel Adams.
