This is a botanical painting in watercolour of an Orchid called Nelly Isler. I bought it from a local garden centre to paint. Unfortunately it died. I did pull a lot of flowers off it to examine them. I also uprooted it to examine the roots. I think it did not like it. I painted this one last year. I like painting Orchids I find them quite fascinating. I got a new A3 scanner for a birthday present, and suddenly all my white backgrounds are white, not a dull grey. I will now be able to post more botanicals from now on.
