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.
An orchid by Margaret from Tuesday group. How exciting is this? I love the energy in this wee single object. Painted with palette knife, no preparation. Just Margaret getting stuck in! This reminds me of Cy Twombly in a controlled state or David Hockney a little out of control.
I have asked Margaret to paint the other two orchids I have in the studio, to complete a series of three.
