8.5x10.5 watercolor of pale yellow orchids I photographed while plein air painting at Alldredge Gardens in Midland, TX recently.
The handmade A4 rough paper was bought when visiting the Tate Gallery in St. Ives, Cornwall and I was afraid it would not be suitable for a fluid floral. The bottom image is sans background just to show the difference a little dark makes. In the finished work you can see other orchids and some pots top center. Quite fun and entertaining! I can paint them but not grow them.
