Nicely done Gita. I'm a bit leery of breaking out my w/c again.... if I'm not mistaken it may be a year or more since I had them out!  :o
I know I will, as I still have great affection for them despite the aggravation they give me...  :tickedoff:        :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Beautiful orchid, Gita. I like how you did the spots on the petal. It’s both realistic and artsy.  :smitten:

Thank you Dennis!
Thank you Mary- Lou. The fever is continuing, but in mixed media. The background of this painting is in acrylic. The flowers are in WC, called btw. Odontoglossum Cervantesii 😅. Origin Mexico. Odonto= tooth, glossum= tounge. I like the shiny look of the bronze background. Love to hear your comments.

What worries me are the yellow patches that have been added in after the painting was completed.
Because it is the background some of the flowers MUST overlap the yellow  O0 At the moment the yellow is all around them and you were afraid to touch the flowers.

I see your point Dennis. The yellow patches are actually the shiny bronze acrylic colour which I added in the end. I shall try to overlap them with the flowers in some areas.
Thank you for your suggestion!  :smiley6600:

Modified the background. Photo looks like it’s overdone , but in real the blue contrasts well with the gold. This painting will need a large Passepartout around it to calm the rather scattered background.
Something like this... I can play around with an app to choose the colours of the passepartout.Very helpful before buying.

Orchid of the day in WC.  This is a hybrid of the Odontoglossum species. All comments are welcome.
