Watercolor painting blog - Orchid watercolor painting

The orchid watercolor painting has been added on more layers of watercolor paint to achieve a more solid background and darker background.   Winsor and Newton watercolor paint is used and the mixing of French Ultramarine Blue, Alizon Crimson and Burnt Sienna gives me darker and richer black for the background.  Layers of watercolor wash is also added on to the leaves behind the orchid.  I think another few layers of watercolor wash should be enough for the final painting and I think some colors in petals of the orchid should be lifted to show more white in contrast with the background.
