Part II Orchid Triptych: Cymbidium
In the triptych, the Phalaenopsis is the first painting, the Oncidium( not yet painted, is the middle one) and this one the Cymbidium is the third. This morning I worked on the backgrounds in order prepare for the middle painting. I think the flow of light, between the three will be good. This one has been a struggle since the initial drawing. But, at this point I am finally starting to be more comfortable with it. As I said, some paintings seem to paint themselves and others make us ...problem solve. This is how we learn. We learn not from the easy ones, but from the ones that we are tempted to throw away.
