Several people have asked to see images of works in progress to see how I come up with a finished illustration.
I like to work with natural light and Im very fortunate to have a great studio space to work in with plenty of natural, Southern California sunshine. I also like to work from living specimens like this White Phalaenopsis which just opened up the other day. Friends and other Orchid lovers like myself are always willing to share a blooimg plant for documentation when I lack live resource materials from my own Orchid collection. Sometimes I venture into new territory like the palm which I posted previously. Check back to see my progress. I will get into more details about materials I use and how I apply them.
