807 Orchid Cactus
I am enjoying a renewed interest in watercolor. Watercolor was my first love as far back as high school, then post-college, but I've set them aside for many years. These are not the same watercolors as they used to be---they have so much more pigment, and are so vibrant!
I took the reference photo for this painting at the Lincoln Park Conservatory on the grounds of the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. I love going there in any season to see all the beautiful plant life.
