Did you know that the world’s smallest known orchid is only about 1/8 inch across while the largest species can be over 10 feet tall?
I have to admit Orchids are not my favorite flower, either in real life or for painting. Not sure why, but they just don’t stir my creative side. But, truthfully, that’s a good reason to paint one, once in a while. It pulls more from my analytic side and it’s a good idea to get both sides communicating!
Doodlewash prompt ‘Orchid’.
