This little green orchid caught my eye because it was so green, except (of course) for the pinkish and burgundy interior. What became more evident to me, though, was that as it got a little older - it took me awhile to get the painting completed - the edges of the green petals began to take on a little tinge of pink.

Water color is always an interesting medium in which to work. The colors are not as intense ... but it is a good exercise for me as an artist to work in a medium that isn't my most common one! It requires me to think and observe on a different level.... which is good for artistic discipline!
