Above and below, a couple of sketchbook pieces that I painted in the summer. I used the same colour palette for the orchids and the sweet peas, as you can see from my little paint tin in the photos.

I made this drawing of a beautiful white orchid in my sketchbook with water resistant pen then coloured it with watercolour paints. I was thinking of colouring the background but after a quick poll on Instagram I decided to leave it white for a more graphic and relaxing effect.

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
