This is an oil painting of a very beautiful sort of orchid. It is 16" x 20" painted in oil on linen. I used my glazing method for this, for which I first paint a finished, detailed grisaille underpainting, following it with many, very thin glazes of colored paint. I call it "Lucid Lavender".
This painting just received a "People's Choice" Award at the Arizona State Fair 2011
