Next steps in the painting of the orchids.  Nothing special, just trying to shape the blossoms after doing the wooden “scaffolding” and the dark stems.  

I am positive, now, that the pinks and the background colors are too sweet so will darken the background - maybe just glaze over it with cobalt blue or a mix of darker blues.

a bit of a darker background might def help the pink to pop more :)

Love the idea Rhonda of a deeper background. Your composition is superb! Hope you are having a great day. Hugs!

Thanks, Jennifer and Debbie.
Seems I’m fading away, as far as blogging - may just do one a week. Getting no inspiration from much of anything right now - perhaps it’s the usual summer slump but this year has been so difficult to stay focused and creative.
Hope you both continue to do well and stay healthy and safe!
