Orchid watercolor painting – Daily transparent watercolor painting

Orchid watercolor painting - 15 x 22 inches

I am painting green plants again.  Although orchids are not green, it is a plant.   This  continuing orchid watercolor painting has been done on 15 x22 inches cold press watercolor paper.  Mostly wet in wet wash was used in the flower sepals and petals.  Some dry brush watercolor technique was used in the darker areas of the pollinia.   It was quite interesting when painting any subjuct especially the orchid.   As I study the orchid, I am beginning to know the various part of the plant and as I paint more orchids I hope I can get the feel of the property of the flower.   I think orchids are very fun and delicate plants to paint in transparent watercolor.
