Thank you Mary Lou, nothing comparable to your paintings, hope to get into the flow. Not completely happy with my colours.
Cheers, Gita

Sharing today’s orchid: Dendrobium williamsonii

Mea, less drama today.. 😅

The one below is modified after Mea‘s comment to darken the middle. I also added pen and ink lines.

Soft colors.  Maybe it's more romance than drama this time.

Looks like the center go use more dark.

Practising further on my orchids. This one is called Cymbidium.
These Orchids are so difficult to paint. 😌. I missed getting the contrasts in this one, since I did not use masking fluid. Instead I used acrylic ink for the whites.
As always all comments are welcome.

On my venture to master painting  these orchids, I came across split primary colours. I created my colour charts with 6 primary colours and the resulting orchid is below. I am really fascinated by painting only with primary colours.
Love to hear your comments and constructive critics. I spent some hours on this.
