Red Orchid

6.8 x 10 inches, watercolor, 2011.

I was itching to do some painting today after spending the last couple of days on pen and marker illustrations. I went to the gardens at RHS Wisley last weekend. They have a wonderful glasshouse there, and I took lots of photos of the gorgeous orchids they have on display. One of them provided the subject for this painting of these beautiful red flowers against a turquoise background.
