1 Line drawing of my orchids, at home. I love painting flowers from real life, rather than from photography (when possible). I find flowers, particularly orchids, very appealing and almost sensual. Painting flowers, brings me a nice feeling of peace and relaxation. I did this picture this afternoon. The weather was stormy, and it felt quite right to start this little project. I did a 1 single line drawing with a pencil, and added watercolors afterwards.
About the drawing technique: the 1 continuous line is a very innovative, experimental and rather difficult to execute technique, where the chosen tool (in this case an ink marker) creates an image with a single trace. The markers is not lifted at all until the picture is completed. The technical challenge of this technique is remarkable, as the artist’s hand is on the visual area for most of the execution time, and no corrections are allowed! Then, I add watercolor to enrich the image and add depth.
