I don't think he uses watercolors but you might want to look up Walasse Ting for birds and flowers...
Good luck,

  Hello fellow artsednetters, I have a project that I like to do in my Art 2 class that uses watercolor-wash, lifting and wet on wet techniques. Over the watercolor we use pen and ink to illustrate the subject with the colors behind the ink.

  Anyway, I am using Birds, Insects (butterflies, moths, etc.) and Flowers as a subject. These will be separate drawings that are put together as a montage with a central figure in a large circle. I wanted to bring into a discussion, some artists that specialize in these subjects especially if they are illustrators or use watercolor. I have thought of James Audubon for birds and Georgia O'Keeffe for flowers but I'm sure there are many more. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  Thanks, Ken Schwab ---
