In this nuevo classical Floral Still life Painting, "Translucent Orchid" an original oil on panel, I wanted to explore the close up beauties of a wonderful orchid which bloomed yet again for the third year in a row. Thes sensous beauties are a challenge to paint and I for one am inthrawled with the translucent qualities of the Orchid flower when filled with light. It's a strange and wonderful world inside an orchid blossum and sometimes I see a face in the pistal and stamen.
Again: Practice makes the perfect challenge for an artist like me in the pursuit of mastery of painting a subject such as translucent orchid blossums.
