Yesterday was a disaster and I accomplished nothing but I wanted to post one final orchid painting from Tuesday. It is slightly larger than the painting from March 9. I like the delicate look of this piece. Three meetings today but I hope to get in some painting!

Orchid #1

I am having some problems with brush loading and need to work on achieving the small stems that support the flowers…but that’s the opportunity to learn, right? Have a lovely day!

PS I just noticed that the one dark flower almost looks like a butterfly…

    I do like the brushstrokes better in this one, Linda. The hint of drybrush on some of the grasses and the fading out of the ink on others creates more interest. Lovely.

  2. The subtle value changes in this work are beautiful!
