Daily watercolor – Orchid watercolor painting – 15 x22 inches

Orchid watercolor painting - Final painting 15 x 22 inches

After painting many more layers of gradated watercolor wash for the background I think I have completed this Orchid watercolor painting.   This is a 15 x 22 inches watercolor and after the last layer of background is dried, I carelfuul did an outline around the orchid to give it a neat and sharp border.  Some watercolor paint areas of the orchid has been scrub away to review a lighter color so it has a bigger contrast towards the black background.  The leaves behind the orchid was also given more layers of watercolor wash to get it in a darker shade.  Finally yellow watercolor was painted on the tip of the orchid for accent.
