Daily Painting #324 – Pigeon Orchid No. 2
(Click image for larger version)
Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 5 x 7 inches — 13 x 18 cm
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.
I am very excited to announce that I have been invited to become a member of a new site called Daily Painter Originals! The web site was started by the wonderful artist Carolyn Finnell. Currently, we are 27 in the group, painting many different subjects and working in a variety of styles and mediums.
New paintings are uploaded to the site everyday. Be sure to subscribe if you wish to have the new paintings e-mailed to you each day.
And in case you haven’t yet…
