Orchids have always been fascinating flowers to me. I love the patterns, lines and colors that they display. When
I look at them they remind me of a cross between an exotic flower and some sort of a sea creature. At the last garden show that I attended there were a lot of gorgeous orchids displayed. This particular one reminded me of star fish. The shape, colors and markings are very star fish like. I chose dark chocolate brown for a background because I thought it would look striking behind the colors in the orchid. (Also, because I absolutely adore chocolate). This style of painting I call hard edge. I felt that this style best illustrates the orchid I was painting. The name “African Queen” is the actual name of this particular variety of orchids.
