Orchid Study

Orchid Study

I loved painting these flowers. I think the painting needs a background. Suggestions welcome!

Since I was little I liked to visualize and create things. Painting with watercolors is what makes me happy now. That, and spending time gardening and reading. I love long walks, biking, and the beach. Cape Cod is where I spend a lot of my leisure time.

  1. I’d leave it just as it is. The blossoms are gracefully lovely.

      Thanks for your compliment, Elena! I am making a bucket list of items that I would like to improve upon in my painting. The list, which grows daily, includes going beyond to the area behind my subject. I have given myself all of 2014 to begin to achieve this! 🙂

    Ah, this is really beautiful Marian !
    I think no need for background color. Orchids petals are really soft and delicately painted .
