Painting and photo

My hospital orchid pic.I painted for two hours last night trying to get the idea of the orchid.

As I have been reading the history of the orchid i saw many naturalists took illustrators along with them to paint the new specimins they saw.

The Northern Orchid growing association had over 700 paintings of prize winning flowers.

I'm not an artist and i have come back to painting late on after taking photos.

I will upload picture that i drew it from.I displayed it on the computer screen for the colours..

Hello Snappy!!! Good to have you back! I like your painting a lot. Its good your not shy any more and we have a possibility to see your work here on your blog. Painting is an excellent way to forget all those sad things. I havent ever had an Orchid but I know many people here collect them. Arent these difficult to grow?
