Living in Singapore, I have decided to give the Orchids a chance... Painting flowers is way out of my comfort zone. Give me portraits, abstracts even trees and you will make me happy. Flowers were never my favourites... I don't even like to have flowers at home. Love them in the garden, and starting today, love them on my canvas :-).
I started as usual with my blue lines on a prepared canvas with an under-paint, continuing with painting the flowers -
Then I added my background blue lines, which will create an abstract net, painting each section separately with warm colors. This will be my second under colors. I do it, though later it will be totally covered, because the warmth of the colors will influence the third layer -
And here it is - Bursting Orchids (20x36 inches, acrylic on canvas) -
This is not the Vanda Miss Joaquim, but a related sibling which I have absolutely no clue what its name is.
