I love this orchid. It’s a dainty little plant with long flower spikes filled of tiny flowers. It’s a common enough plant in this part of the world.
The painting and its companion in sepia tones were done some time ago! The orchid itself is still in my garden...
The paper I use is a traditional mulberry paper handmade in Thailand. The paper is a thick parchment paper, strong yet pliable. I have the paper made to this size to get the deckled edges which adds to the textural effect. The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a better feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage from a recent travel, a favorite flower or garden ? Contact me.
