Painting Kuching in Watercolour

Archive for April 2012

I have been growing this phalaenopsis hybrid from seedling and was quite pleased when a flower spike started up.  Alas, as the buds grew, some pesky insect got busy and chewed them up just as they were about to bloom!  That’s how I ended up with only one flower on this plant!

Painted on my very last piece of 9” x 12” Cotmans 140lbs watercolour paper with Holbein paints.  And it’s back to the many glazes of transparent, non-staining pigments, starting with Gamboge Nova, Alizarin, Marine Blue, Opera and Permanent Violet.

This doily is for the picnic table on my patio and was Inspired by the jasmine in my garden! That’s a sprig of the left of the pic.

I worked from an old pattern but added extra flowers.
