Inspired for a theme show in 2008 Orchid Festival Art show. I loved the brilliant flaming colors of this orchid species, Masdevallia ignea. I wanted to showcase an unusual species.
This is done with oil pastel (Sennelier) on archival artist sandpaper (Wallis). Thick layers with color showing through the strokes. The photo does not really show the iridescent copper color that comes through in the background.
