Orchid Watercolor Painting - Pencil outline and mask

This  new 15 x 22 watercolor painting based on an orchid photo I have taken during my latest trip to Singapore last month.  The photo was taken in the Singapore Botanical Garden where many varities of orchid are grown and displayed.  I started this watercolor painting by sketching out the orchid onto the cold press watercolor paper.  Then a mask was used to cover the orchid area because I planned to do a watercolor wash for the whole background.   Pebeo drawing gum was used for the blocking out and the masking of the orchid.
