White Orchid Sketch

Today I made this quick pen and watercolour sketch of an orchid; it was dark and snowy outside so I decide to reflect that in the dark background which I also hoped would make the white flowers ‘pop’!

I’m not very good at looking after these beauties…all the more reason to paint them before they drop off!

As an experimental afterthought I sprinkled a bit of bleach to lift the colour, worked rather well I think!

This one is for my lovely mum! Happy Mother’s Day, I love you dearly xxx
