View Full Version : WDE - 032213 - Orchids pastel framed
03-25-2013, 06:26 PM
8.5x11" cream card stock, pastel pencils and pastels, slightly cropped and edited in Picasa. Almost gave up on this until I remembered I'd chosen this plant more for it's lovely, healthy leaves and in hopes it will survive as long as my larger orchid. In real life there are more leaves, and more flowers, but they didn't fit and wouldn't have added to the picture.
C&C welcome, but won't be adding the pot or shadows. It is what it is:)

This is a nice piece, I like the way you have created a simple yet luminous background.

Lovely and gentle work Paula. Orchids are my favorite flowers.

Hey Paula:wave: love the shapes and colours of these flower:clap: my thoughts would be to add a tad of dark to the inside of the leaf bottom left and maybe an impression of veins in the other two.

It's Lovely Paula delicate and soft, well done :D
.....you're going to laugh, but I looked and looked for the Orchid reference, couldn't find it,
kept wondering where you found the Orchids, thought it was from another WDE
.......and then the light bulb hit me finally when I re-read your post.....
Ah Ha......It's the flowers in the fancy hat!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
I couldn't make them out didn't know they were Orchids......I've had a good week with things like that!!! So funny :D :lol: :lol:

They may not have been orchids, but I thought they were, especially since the colors matched my own plant. (Bet everyone else is wondering how I got the cheek to put in my own plant:)
