Orchid for Karen

My aunt has been encouraging me to do more florals, so I spent the day on this small (5x7, colored pencil) orchid close-up. Sorry to say the photo looks better than the real thing! I really wasn't going for this hot pink and wanted the whole thing more delicate. Just not happy with this one. Have another reference photo waiting in the wings, so I may try another soon.


  1. Thanks, Nora. I really was going more for fuschia than hot pink. On to the next one!

  2. It may not be exactly the color you intended but the painting is luscious anyway.
