orchid bloom final

A still life using palette knife and sneaking in a wee brush mark or two. This orchid is from the artificial flower company Bloom. A fine permanent model to try out technique before the frustration of perishable real ones.

    • Thanks Rosie! I’ve been really busy lately and it’s good to be painting again. This will hopefully turn into a wee series of palette knife paintings. Good fun! 🙂
