Artist's description:

This one goes back … Orchids have fascinated me for such a long time and every now and again I’ll get inspired to represent them in painting. This one though is no longer with me. Such a lovely miniature Bulbophyllum orchid. Here as in other paintings done at that time I was experimenting using acrylic colour and some airbrush overtones. Airbrush work gives a nice velvety texture when applied to this paper. There are 2 versions of this painting, a single flower painting, and one with 3 flowers.
The paper used here is a traditional paper handmade in Thailand. It’s a thick parchment like 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 feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
Then there’s me holding up the painting for perspective.
Watermark is on the photo only, not on the painting.
Packaging for my small paintings like this one is sealed in plastic sleeve, sealed in a padded hard plastic file case, and in an envelope.
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.
About framing.
When considering framing bear in mind to not cover up the deckled edges. This is one of the specialties of the painting, one of its charms. It is best displayed framed with a cut mat board around the painting so as not to cover the edges, thereby putting some space between the art and the glass and bringing depth to the framed art. It can also be framed simply with backing board and pressed with glass over the front without causing damage.

Interested to have your idea painted in this style? Maybe a storyboard collage, a corner of your garden, your neighbourhood or street? Contact me.
