After the rain the orchids sparkle

The sun shines again

 

Painted on Cotmans coldpress 140lbs watercolour paper using Winsor & Newton colours – permanent rose, mauve & magenta for the blooms. The green of the leaves were built up with successive glazes of cadmium yellow, phthalo blue and sap green.  The shadows are alizarin crimson and dioxazine violet.
