Painting Kuching in Watercolour

White Vandas

Posted on: 09/11/2011

Wow, I can’t believe how busy I’ve been lately – have only managed this quick study in the past month!

I composed this study from photos taken of the white variety of Vanda Miss Joachim in the DBKU Orchid Garden. I like the challenge of painting white flowers! I’m still using the Cartiera Magnani paper which meant I had to be extra careful with my washes as it is impossible to lift off any mistakes from this paper.

By the way, it is an Orchid Garden, so what are bromellaids doing there? And surely there are more to orchids than rows and rows of vandas, dendrobiums, more vandas….oh well, at least entrance is free!
