Ruby Leopard Slipper Orchid

Well I certainly decided to stretch myself with this drawing. I just loved the photo so much that I had to try it out. It has taken many days to complete and though I can still see faults with it I am fairly happy with the result. And I even finally did a background!!! Medium – Polychromos, Prisma, Luminance, Koh-I-Noor Polycolor, Copic blender Paper & Size – Strathmore Bristol Smooth 500 series 6 ½ x 8” Reference – photo by Al Whitaker used with his generous permission

Cynthia Knox asked:
Robin, this is so vibrant and exotic! I love the bold and dramatic colors with the striking detail throughout. Such a beautiful piece, and I'm sure it will look awesome framed and hanging in a room somewhere!
