Here is my latest orchid watercolor, a crop of lovely laeliocattleyas. Done on 300# Arches Cold Press Watercolor paper in 15x22 format. I call them Gossipers because they remind of a group of ladies sharing the latest tidbits of news. Such pretty colors, and such fun to paint. My first use of a really dark background. I think I'll be using this style in future paintings for the drama! The original is for sale, $300.00 matted, unframed.
