Hi WDE'ers!

Thought I'd try my hand at the orchids this weekend and say hey to everyone.

I put some gesso down first on the paper for texture. I also went back in with pencil, watercolor pencil, and a white Neocolor II watercolor soluble wax pastel crayon for more texture after I painted it.

It measures 5 x 7 inches and it took 1 hour to finish.

Beautiful vibrant blooms! I like the addition of the pencil. I also enjoy using wax to add texture in watercolours :)
