Daily Watercolor – Orchid watercolor painting

Daily watercolor - Orchid watercolor painting

Continue with my Orchid watercolor painting last night doing the last two orchids in watercolor paint and also change the background to much deeper color.  The dark color was a mixture of green, blue and red to produce a deep dark background.  This is the first dark watercolor wash on top of the light ochre background and there will be many layers more so that it will be close to black watercolor.  I might eventually try some black watercolor in this case which I have never used before.  I think for a certain areas near the orchid I need the very deep dark to contrast the orchid.  I am trying to make the orchid pop out of the dark background.
