Something New

I have been working on this piece in between the orchid paintings. It is a larger piece, 26" high and 41" wide. It is close to actual size of the palm in the garden.

Sunday Cymbidium

This is a new approach with the treatment of the leaves. Its a bit more "designed" than a direct depiction of the plant. I think it works well. Parnell Corder.

Orange Orange Orange

Here is another example of Vuylstekeara Cambria. This genus was named after the famous Belgian orchid collector Charles Vuylsteke in 1911. He raised many Hybrid Orchids and created the first Bigeneric Hybrid between Odontoglossum and Cochlioda.

Vuylstekeara Cambria

I decided to focus on the bloom alone on this painting. The paper size is 11" x 11" . I would like to do more like this and create an entire grid wall of them say, 20 paintings or so.
