Paphiopedilum fairrieanum

Paphiopedilum fairrieanum

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.

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."
