OSWOA - Showy Lady's Slipper 1

I started this painting a long time ago (see post on 09 December 2011) and recently came across it in a box of small paintings that needed to be completed.

First using cadmium yellow I put in the stamens and the little bit of yellow on one of the petals.

Next using French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I added more details to the petals with shading.

With alizarin crimson I added a little more colour to the pink areas of the flower.

Lastly using various mixtures of French ultramarine blue, Antwerp blue, raw sienna and aureolin I finished painting the leaves and stem.

The OSWOA shown here is an original watercolour painting using Artist quality Winsor & Newton paint on 300lb. Arches 100% rag, acid free watercolour paper. It is priced at $40.00 and sold unframed.
