Miltonia Orchids in Watercolor

Miltonia Orchids1 Small

Miltonia Orchids Close Up Small

My daughter painted these gorgeous miltonia orchids during a recent late night mother-daughter painting session. I love the bits of white she left on the edges of the petals and the one bright white flower to the left of the center of the painting she chose as her focal point. And of course I love the bright, highly saturated colors.

This painting was based on a tutorial in Ann Mortimer’s newly released book, “Orchids in Watercolor.”

      Thanks, Pat. I’m hoping my daughter will let me frame this painting and hang it in my room.

      I think to, too. This painting was a departure from her usual style–the colors were much more vibrant than she normally uses.
