Still blooming

Orchid flowers

I have drawn my orchid plant before. To think I almost threw it out this time last year because it hadn't bloomed for three years. Since last spring it has been on a roll. Currently it has two shoots in flower.

The plant is actually growing sideways in the pot. I'm thinking it might need some repotting. I'm not quite sure what to do. But then, if it is blooming this much, maybe it's happy in its pot. Any thoughts?

This is a blind contour drawing of two of the flowers. Funny how blind contours can bring out the personality of the thing.

  1. I don't have a green thumb but it sounds like you do! Longwood Gardens has a whole room of orchids... you could always contact them with your orchid questions! I love blind contour for exactly the reason you stated-- the lines are so pure and capture the subject more precisely. Nice drawing Jen!
