Cattelya Orchid in Digital Oils

Title: Cattelya Orchid in Digital Oils
Medium: Digital Oils in Corel Painter 11 & Intuos3 4x5Wacom Tablet
Size: 7″ x 7″
Year: 2010
Notes: This orchid study was a personal project. I focused on painting from a reference photo with digital oils (RealBristles brush) and a tiny 5 pixel pallet knife.  The head of the pink and yellow orchid flower is in focus, drawing the viewers attention, while the leaves curve in and out of focus to blend into the background.
