ACEO oil painting on gessoed matboard
Approximately 2.5 x 3.5 inches — 6.5 x 9 cm

This orchid bud was done using leftover oil paint that I had from the previous day’s session. My reference was a pencil sketch that I did from life a few years ago. Somehow the monochrome effect didn’t look right as I was painting it, but in the end, I liked it and thought it had a “classic” feel to it.
