flores chiquitas

started these flowers last night. i've had the background for a while but have been waiting to paint the right imagery on it. i like the organic movement and didn't want to do anything that would obstruct or lose the quality too much. i decided to go small and concentrated, so far.

sketched in some orchids on a dark blueish gray background with a white pencil.
i wondered if i reversed the image in photoshop it would
turn out like a graphite drawing?
the results: yup.
the reason: just because
the outcome: neato

started this last night. there are times where i want to leave some of the painting really broken up and undone like this. i tend to either not allow myself or forget during the process. maybe someday...
