Venus slipper Orchid art

Venus slipper Orchid

I almost forgot to draw these beautiful orchids. I had to Google them to remember the name. I call them cup orchids but they are actually Paphiopedilum, often called the Venus slipper. They look more like cups than slippers to me ๐Ÿคญ

It was a slow start today but I eventually attempted another oil pastel botanical drawing. Looks more of a blob than anything. Argggh. Exhale and let it go.

Hibiscus botanical drawing in pastels

Hibiscus botanical drawing

Today I experimented with some oil pastels. The unfortunate thing was that the red pastel which was the main colour was dried out but I mixed it with some dry pastels. I managed to solve the missing red colour issue by combining the dry and oil pastels.

Up up and away

Up up and away

It’s not everyday that I get asked to paint something for a newborn.
I completed my first baby commission a couple of months ago for my best friend’s daughter. I was so excited to paint something for her but was a bit apprehensive as to what but I’m super happy with the end results. ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿญ๐Ÿ€

Into the forest I go…

I love the natural world and going for hikes in our tropical rainforest.
As an artist, I find much of my inspiration from nature.
Our rainforests are one of the oldest in the world and it is home to many species of plants, birds, insects and wildlife.
This trail is a city green lung which is such a gem and is something I am grateful to have as our rainforests are fast disappearing.
Follow me into the forest and fall in love with our jungle with me ๐Ÿ’š
