    Default Watercolor

    Hi folks!

    I wanted to share an orchid painting I did. It is a watercolor and is approximately 11x16. My scanner has not been working or I would have posted it earlier. I have been photographing orchids for awhile now, and found that I really enjoy painting them too. Anyway, here it is. I hope you enjoy it.

    Cheers!

    Sorry, Forest, it was too large at first. I had to go back and put it in.

    Cheers!

    Thanks! I really enjoy painting. I wish I had more time to paint. I have a couple other ones, but I will wait to see if I can do something really nice before posting them. Thanks again!

    Cheers!

    Thanks, Prem!

    It is a cattleya hybrid called C.Frasquita (C. bicolor x C. velutina). Sorry I did not identify it in the original post.

    Cheers!
