Two more orchids

Oh my, I haven’t posted much the last two months. Excuses for that.
Even worse: I have not drawn or painted one single stroke the last couple of weeks. I seriously need to get back to it.
Yesterday I stumbled upon an old acrylic painting. It was my very first attempt to paint in transparent layers. I wasn’t that happy with the result, but it was something different. Actually I liked the grisaille. Perhaps I should have left it in greyscale and not try to achieve a colorful image :).
Here is the WIP, step by step.
PS: The backgroundcolor is a dark green (not black), these pics were taken with my old camera which wasn’t as good in capturing subtle shades of color.
