Oriental Flair Big

Oriental Flair Big
11" x 14"
Prismacolors and Coloursofts on grey Pastelbord

I hope everyone had a good weekend. I carved out some time this weekend to work on a larger version of the oriental inspired orchids (mostly the rainy Saturday we had). I haven't varnished this piece yet, so I hope the grey board won't darken it too much when  I spray it. I think what happens is the varnish makes the board show through more making it darker. 

Below is this piece paired with the mini piece for scale.

Beautiful Nicole!! I love the purple you added to the background of the larger version. Yes, I noticed that the spray varnish does seem to darken it a bit after being applied. Hard to predict just how much the painting will be affected.

It's beautiful. The larger version has much better composition, and I really hope it won't darken too much.
