These pigeon orchids are a challenge to paint. I have to start painting as soon as the buds open or else they will be droopy and wilted before I even finish setting up my oil paints! They are beautiful flowers though and I look forward to painting them some more in the future.

Here is the pigeon orchid (dendrobium crumenatum) in bloom. I like these delicate white flowers. They began to wilt even as I was painting them though.

This is the first time I’m painting the Pigeon Orchid (dendrobium crumenatum). Our little plant has actually bloomed before, but I wasn’t quick enough to paint the flowers then. My Mom and I were new to the Pigeon Orchid and we were more accustomed to longer blooming orchids. I was very surprised when these wilted after only a few hours! I made sure to catch the blooms (and bud) this time though.
