Orchid #2 and a Glider Sketch



Art has happened nearly every day - posting has not. Reminds me of my vegetable gardening - love to grow 'em, then put off the harvesting 'til "tomorrow". Luckily, the art doesn't turn to cardboard like the green beans do.

Anyway, Orchid #2 is finished for the tryptich - Cattleya, Florist's Orchid.









I didn't officially participate in the World-wide Sketch Crawl, but maybe I'm dipping my toes in the water for the next one.
This started out as a pencil sketch, then colored with watercolor. It seemed a little ho-hum until the black fine-point Sharpie came out and dressed up the lines.
