Orchid House Field Trip

Went on a wonderful field trip with my Colored Pencil Society Chapter today. This orchid nursery had so many different orchids that in about an hour I had taken almost 500 photos, no kidding. This is my favorite group shot because I love the gentle arch they both form, the small buds on the top left and the colors - just beautiful. I will be sharing orchids with you all week so stay tuned for some of my favorites. My head is spinning with all kinds of creative ideas on how to use them - backgrounds, repeat patterns, outlined shapes, and sizes of all proportions especially overblown and abstract. Can you imagine? Nope, probably not, my artistic brain is a scary place sometimes :)
