Watercolour Painting - Zygopetalum Orchid

in ntopaz •  last month 

ntopaz-image-0I painted this art work a few years ago. I painted from life as I wanted to create a scientific painting that looked similar to those botanical paintings of the 18th and 19th century, which were used to identify plants.

Back in the day I worked at the Royal Botanical Gardens Kew and I saw many of these old paintings in the library of the herbarium.

I painted this art work in watercolours, I hope to do some more of these botanical paintings soon.

Beautiful watercolour artwork. It's a scientific painting but it looks very lively and artistic.

Thanks @livvu, I have just discovered nTopaz, I'm looking forward to using it more.

I like the color you use to paint the orchid which makes the painting so elegant.

Hello @cafeconleche, no problem, I did paint this art work a few years ago so it's not recent. With my new painting I generally take progress shots so I'll include these in future posts. I'll fill out my profile as you requested :)

@cafeconleche I just tried the discord link and it said it was invalid!

Oh Samuel, excuse us. We don't know what happened with the link. Here we leave it again #profile-completion

I love this. You captured the feel of the old botanical drawings perfectly. I love that style

Hello, samuel-earp-art. I love your artwork. First, because I love orchids, second, because your work reminds me those watercolors with which those romantics scientists, expeditionaries and, at the same time, artists that until the end of the XIX century were elaborating, lost in any of the exuberant American jungles.

Greetings from a Venezuelan artist... My little upvote to you ;-)

Thanks @yomismosoy :)

Reminds me of the audobon illustrations, good job.

Ahh I love those oldschool illustrations. Photos are more accurate but just don't have the same feel. More botanical paintings would be great if you have the time :D

Thanks @ryivhnn :)

Hi Samuel, it is nice to see you in NTopaz and to enjoy your beautiful works. I noticed you wanted to submit this work for the contest, Unfortunately, it does not comply with rules of contest:

  1. the work should be NEW
  2. there should be process steps of your work.

Nevertheless, it is beautiful watercolor work and we could move it to the CR: creation section. If you would like to submit new work, we would be really happy for that. Cheers, @stef1
