Painting #27 Orchid and Sketch

I used a friend's photo as a reference for this painting of an orchid.  
A few weeks ago I did the lower sketch in ball-point pen in preparation for the painting.

I really love painting flowers.

This is interesting to see both versions of this. You have captured quite a bit of detail with both media.

It is such a good challenge to do the same idea in a different medium. Nicely done, Teri.

I really like the faint pencil lines I see in the bottom version. It give it a strong botanical feel. I also like seeing the "hand of the artist." at work.
