"Orchids" are a fascinating beautiful family of plants. Did you know that they can be found on every continent with the exception of Antarctica? Most Orchids are known as "epiphytes" and prefer to grow without soil but by attaching to other plants instead. Their unique flowers evolved to attract pollinators so they are irresistible to bees, hummingbirds, butterflies and the like.
This original mixed media artwork was drawn with a water soluble pen with my non dominant hand on a collaged substrate of papers including some from a vintage textbook on beekeeping. I added a wash of gesso before doing my drawing, then brought the piece to life with watercolors.
The artwork is 4" x 6" on paper and will be shipped to you in an archival sleeve so that you can frame it to your liking.
