30x45cm (12"x18"), watercolor on Arches
 Orchid in bloom. I can not walk around it without looking admiringly at the perfect shape and color of the flower. So I paint it again.
Sketchbook, PITT pen and watercolor

EDM # 23 "Draw your foot". I do. Not the orchid for sure, too far from perfect. But the carpet is good. 100% wool.

  4. The orchid is gorgeous, love it! And your foot made me laugh! The sketch is very good, but the carpet is good too! :)

  5. Irina, these orchids are beautiful!, very lively and cheerful. You've got a very rich nuances and excellent contrast.
    The foot and carpet, sensational.

  6. The orchid we define as beautiful, and the foot we don't. But each has its own use and its own beauty, and you represented them both very well!

  7. I liked the transparent petals with the veins and the color contrast has made it very attractive,as much as they are in real! The foot against a printed carpet was a great idea to execute!
