This is a watercolour of my Cymbidium (orchid) that I have growing in pots on my patio I did a year ago. I was quite happy with the absracty feel to the background and colours I chose!
I have not been able to paint much recently as the end-of-year squeeze has not allowed me that privilege.

Done on 300gsm paper with w/n watercolour paints.


watercolours, south african, debbie schiff, orchid, moonlit
