    Default Orchid Porcelain painting

    Here is my first attempt at painting orchids... any flower for that matter. As I am learning Porcelain painting, I tried doing it on porcelain.

    Good choice for a painting and very nice. I've painted a few orchids on canvas using oil before but I've never tried this technique, should be a very interesting hobby
