    Default Burrageara Nelly Isler just for fun

    Saw someone had something about Burrageara 'Nelly Isler' on this morning and thought I would let you see that I am painting Nelly in my studio at the present time. It is for an exhibition and is on vellum.

    That looks good!

    I must say that I prefere the painting over the plant but then I am into mini miniature species and angrecoids at the moment!

    Great work on this painting of the Burrageara Nelly Isler. I love the red orchids!! I think you have really made the painted orchid look lots better than the real one. haha...

    cheers,

    I bought one of these Orchids at the whopping price of $95.00 It croaked shortly after the flower faded. Perhaps I should have commissioned you to paint me one. Would surley have had to pay more for the painting, but I would still have it now. Your painting s are beautiful.

    Very nice touch. It looks like you've been doing this awhile. Do you have more?
