I love orchids and usually have several throughout my home. This one was so beautiful I decided to capture it for enjoyment long after its blooms have fallen. Because the blooms are so large and so white, you have to look very closely at all the colors within the highlights and the shadows that make up each individual flower. Each petal is a mix of warm and cool colors from yellow ochre, pink, blues and purples carefully applied to not over-blend and become muddy.
