“Orchids Memory” Mixed Media on paper
I love to paint what is around me especially the things that strike me as profound and unearthly. My dad bought orchids a few weeks ago but it died. All I was able to save was a simple sketch of the flower which prompt this painting.
Orchids Memory is done in mixed media which uses acrylics for the orchids and watercolor for the background. I painted the orchids using a palette knife with acrylic paint. Then I use a brush to fine tune the details such as the shadows and the lines on the leaves. The fluidity of watercolor makes great background.
God bless us all!
Lis, the beautiful colors in your painting make me wish I could have seen the real orchids.
Beautiful work! The composition of this one is really good.
Beautiful painting and the title is so appropriate, such a shame the Orchid didn’t live very long:(
