Even though I'm still adding the final touches to Mike's cat, I've decided I need to get started on my next floral. This time I've chosen Lady Slipper orchids and need to work out the composition. This is basically just scribbling on the back of an envelope with a ballpoint pen. I really should invest in a sketch book but somehow it never happens. I plan to pour the background and paint the orchids in more detail like East Meets West.
