Miniature Pastel Painting no.2

Being an avid orchid collector, I have been wanting to paint one of my flowering beauties for as long as I can remember. I have spent the better part of yesterday going over my photos and trying to figure out which poses to combine and use fo rmy next composition.  Many of you will readily recognize this now popular orchid as none other than the "moth" orchid.

Beautiful already, Colette! I have an Orchid plant that has thrived for a few years since my daughter gave it to me...the flowers are so beautiful. I look forward to seeing this finished.
