His capacity for beautiful composition which in no way compromises the need for scientific accuracy, his eye for detail, his obvious sensitivity and love for the subject, whether it be a bud at the brink of anthesis, an unfurling petal, stamens in the various stages of dehiscence or a withering leaf, all these aspects are portrayed in a moment of time, all apparently drawn with the artistic freedom and licence of the flower painter, but their portrayal is in fact strictly restrained by the straight-jacket of botanical convention. Indeed, perhaps the simple distinction between a flower painter and a botanical artist is that the subject of the latter can always be identified to specific level by a competent botanist, as it will be accurate in all its parts
