Each Day I will post a corresponding blog post about each artwork with the title and information about the artwork along with a story behind the artwork.
Title: Blue Orchid I
Medium: India ink, blue ink and silver iridescent ink
Paper: 140 lb cold press watercolor paper
With this drawing, I found a beautiful orchid image online that I thought was neat. I drew out the sketch and then I added some abstract shapes and details that weren’t in the original image. I added small circle details to add texture and interest to the leaves. This artwork was the first time that I used the acrylic inks in this way and I really enjoyed experimenting with it. I wanted it to have a texture and a watery look to the petals. In person, you can truly see the silver ink that is added as well. It adds a magical touch that makes it even more whimsical.
