Watercolour on 140 lb. Arches cold press paper.
This was painted in response to a challenge posted on flickr by Lorus Maver (Bill), also on redbubble. It is a combination of Bill’s photo and my own live orchids that have been blooming for the last two months. I am always amazed by their long lasting blooms, the intricate construction of their centres, and the delicacy of their petals. I tried to capture that in this watercolour.
