So pretty! The various values of purple in the petals is really nice! Thank you for sharing!
Love this purple orchid. Very nicely done
Thank you for the encouragement
Thank you June.The photo reference was my own orchid that bloomed in my living room. The flower was white and purple. I could not do white so went with pinks and purple…
Hi Akunn - The orchid is really nice and you clearly have several layers already for a nice combination of colors. I’d suggest you try even more layers so you can get a bigger range of value on the green leaves and the flower petals. That highlight is great and brings my eye right to that flower.
I don’t know if you watch Matt’s weekly critique, but it is the one thing I make sure to do every week since it takes less than a half hour. He frequently talks about the importance of “value” and how to obtain a good range in a piece of art.
Thanks so much for sharing. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
These are quite lovely. I find orchids are not always easy to draw. You’re doing great!
