Victoria Married Oct. 24, 2009

This wedding bouquet painting was done on a 24" x 36" gallery wrapped canvas. I love the contrast of the lime green orchids and the beautiful shades of purples.

Here are some close-ups of different sections of the painting. Besides the orchids there were gerberas , purple delphiniums and gardenias.

Orchids and gardenias are very difficult to press. They typically come out brown in color. Phaelaenopsis which are the purple ones press well, but cymbidiums like the lime green and other colors turn brown when pressed. I have managed to press these green cymbidiums and apply them to the painting and seal them well. There is no guarantee that they will remain their normal color.
