I grow & breed orchids. I love them, to me they are living sculpture. Naturally I end up doing paintings on this subject. A few years back I went through a phase with this type of orchid, Oncidium equitants. So there’s a few paintings based on this orchid…. many have sold & some really nice ones are still for sale.
My paper is a traditional handmade mulberry paper made in Thailand. The paper is a thick parchment type 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. 3rd picture is a perspective with me holding the painting.
Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage of flowers, or a corner from your garden? Contact me.
Please note that you can purchase in one order up to 6 paintings of this same size (small painting category) or smaller to be included in the same 1 shipping fee.
Packaging for my small paintings like this one is sealed in plastic sleeve, sealed in a padded hard plastic file case, and envelope covering.
