Painting Kuching in Watercolour

Blue Vanda

Posted on: 02/09/2011

I visited the International Orchid Show at the end of July and saw some Vanda Pacharas on display. Actually I find some of these new Vanda hybrids too gaudy with cartoonish colours but I thought this blue purple Vanda Pachara would be a good challenge to paint! After some experimenting I decided to go the Impressionist way, that is, dabs of colour that make up the blue purple spectrum and let the eye mix the colour. I used Holbein’s Permanent Rose, Cobalt Blue, Permanent Violet and Ultramarine Deep. The yellow is Aureolin and the paper Cotmans Coldpressed 140lbs.
