Bronze Slipper Orchid oil painting

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.
