Pink Phalaenopsis Orchid

Copyright 2010 Maria Soto Robbins

My cousin Anna posted her photo on Facebook of one of my favorite varieties of orchids and I couldn't help myself-I had to paint it! The flowers of this species of phalaenopsis supposedly resemble moths in flight. For this reason, the species are sometimes called Moth orchids.

This one is painted in an impressionistic style with gently textured impasto.
Lightly damar varnished to protect it from dust and ensure longevity.

Dimension: 9x12 inches gallery wrapped canvas

Media: Oils
