Painting Kuching in Watercolour

Yellow Phalaenopsis

Posted on: 27/04/2012

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.
