I have been working on an orchid painting. This painting is pastel on 6x12 PastelBord. I approached the painting by first doing an underpainting in Sienna tones. Once the underpainting was finished, the background was next. Then it was time to start working on the flowers. Here is a sequence of step-by-step photos. The painting isn't finished yet, but it will be soon.

Artichoke and Lemons - finished

The Artichoke and Lemons is finished. The finished size is about 9x12. This is pastel on PastelMat paper. Next, I need to get it in a frame.
