I’m just back from a trip to sunny Florida, and whilst we had a great time away, it’s always lovely to be back home!
And back to the easel.
When I’m away from it for too long I really start to miss painting.
I can hardly believe I went for years and years without painting before (check out the video here if you want to hear me talk about that)
So, as a fond farewell to tropical climes, I wanted to share with you how I went about painting the detailed stripes on the Phalaenopsis Orchid from last time.
Hint: you’ve got to get the ‘white’ of the flower as dark as it needs to be before you paint those stripes!
