There is nothing winter related about Winter orchid watercolor’s content, except for the fact that it was painted in December. I bought in Autumn a small purple orchid since I adore flowers and nature, especially alive, potted ones. And I love to see it growing and still hanging on. I wasn’t so sure it would survive in an apartment environment.
When I bought it it had 2 blossoms and 2 buds. They all bloomed and now it has one blossom, for about 2 months. I will move it in a bigger pot after this last bloom falls. It’s really nice that you can enjoy orchid blossoms more than other flower’s blossoms. I also have cactus potted in my balcony. They have the shortest bloom from all the flowers I have, but they’re beautiful.
Now, back to the painting. It’s a quick watercolor painting I did in December, last year. It is a study of flowers and I enjoyed working on it. I am not very good with patience and that is why I did a very quick study of it.
