"Orchid" ©Misha Ambrosia
- Acrylic on Canvas 48"L x72"H x 2 ½”W
- Artwork completed: April 26, 2014
- I love having orchids on my watercolor desk in my studio. And every season when she blooms I get orchid-fevered-itch to paint her!!!
- This artwork was carefully created with delicate layers of paint.
- An orchid petal is so strong and sturdy as well as being very translucent. In order for me to achieve this balance, I would paint this piece every day or two, just to build the layers, and avoided the opaque look.
- The canvas is a pretty big-one built by my friend Angie Alexieff, who is an astounding artist herself. The canvas measurements are 4 foot by 6 foot with a 2 ½” width. It’s a wonderful large-scale beauty!
- Shipping will be $600.00. If you would like to pick this canvas up at my studio...we can talk...I am very flexible!
- Please check out the other orchid painting on this website named "Studio Orchid!" While this orchid is painting is translucent, her sister is painted opaque-very similar to a Georgia O'Keefe style!
