Floral Oil Painting of Orchids and Apples, "11 x 14"

"Delicate Beauty"

Orchids have a certain delicate beauty. I especially like the white ones because of the way they catch the light and shimmer. In this piece I tried to capture not just the light but the delicate color in the shadows as well. The heavy orange-red cloth helps to set off the blossoms and color of the apples. There is a generous paint layer on the flowers as well as apples which can be seen in the detail below.
