3 Way Orchid

Brush painted yin/yang lines
Amy got her Cattleya orchid to bloom and sent me a picture. I drew the orchid for my Chinese Brush Painting class and inked it as we were instructed.

Then I did the watercolor wash, and I am all set for the next class when we learn how to do the botanical linework.

This class is doing the gong bi style, which is very detailed and precise.
Water color wash added.  This is still a work in progress till the next class.

Colored pencil orchid









But my pencils called out and I drew a 2nd orchid, this time with my colored pencils. It will be fun to see which I like the best in the end.

Your ability to translate what you see into lines and color is getting better and better! you are really turning into a great artist!
