Arrow The Plant Parade Project: July 2009

The Plant Parade: July 2009

Hi, I’m hosting this month project, and the project is to paint Green Orchids and create a piece or more of artwork
in whichever medium you wish, whatever style you wish, crop, macro or a bunch.

Thailand is famous with their amazing Orchids and I have chosen green colour as a theme for this month’s project.
They are from my own image collections; some are a bit blurry, mostly indoor photos and one from RIL.
I still have some more green orchids but hope these are quite interesting for you to choose from.

No challenge this month except have fun with these beautiful green nature has given us.

Reveal date for this project is 25th of the month anything uploaded before then will be removed ....
we may discuss problems and strategies but not show what we're up to

Above all - enjoy yourselves!

Re: The Plant Parade Project: July 2009

Hello Katherine, I'm counting you in still twenty five days to go.
If possible I would prefer to start early in doing PPP, working between WDEs (weekend drawing event).
See you there

Bonnie, I saw you have that green already
If anyone have the recipe for these greens and want to share with us please do

The other week I bought a new green acrylic paint but haven't try it yet.

Good to see you Marion, choose many and start early
