So, here's some step-by-step pics of my latest orchid painting. I had this thing sketched out for a long while, but I was afraid to start it b/c of how complex it was.....and mid way through, I thought I'd ruined it. Then again, I think that half-way through every painting.
What I REALLY wanted to accomplish was getting that boca effect in the background. I'm very slowly getting the hang of it, bit by bit. Enjoy!
