This is the third painting I did in my orchid series, I found the plant at an orchid convention and fell in love in an instant.
But the specimen was part of the exhibition and not for sale, so I had to do all sketches, and colour matching right there on the ground between the visitors of the convention.
Definitely one of my most challenging hunts for painting references.
Mischka (*1996 in Austria) graduated from the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in 2019 with distinction and received the James & Eve Bennett Trust Fund Award. Fellow member of the Society of Botanical Artists, UK. "Artistically I am often drawn to ordinary plants, trying to capture their subtle and sometimes hidden beauty, which is often overlooked in everyday life. For my paintings I am layering lots of thin, transparent watercolor washes with tiny brushes for maximum detail and radiant colour."
