First - and last? - orchid painting almost finished
Do I like this painting? I am really not sure: these are certainly not my favorite colors and the many dark layers decreased the transparency that I like. I also find the composition too busy. However, I am glad that I painted this even though it looked too complicated for me to tackle. I may paint another orchid painting, but certainly not in these colors.
Did I like the Fabriano SP paper? yes, and I will try it again for another floral. It is really between a cold press and a hot press paper. The background is not quite as smooth as it would have been on a CP paper, but I like the way the paint glides on this paper.
Let me know what you think of this painting. I always appreciate your comments and suggestions...without them, painting would be too much of a lonely activity.
Have a great Sunday evening.
