Bronze Slipper Orchid with dew drops by Marion Hedger
46x55cm oils on narrow box canvas
The photo for this was taken at Park Pheonix, Nice, France a couple of weeks ago. I've tried to portray the waxy leaves on this one. I uses a blending technique to represent those shiny leaves, with some glazing with undiluted paint on some areas.
Stay tuned for more orchid paintings, as this is one of my favourite subjects.
