A Study for Oil Painting

Pen and color pencil on paper.
9" x 12"

This was a study for my orchids oil painting, but I abandoned it some months ago. I put the tablet of drawing paper away, and didn't think about it. Last night I thought I should do some sketching and as I flipped the pages of my tablet I was surprised to find a drawing there. I worked on it some more, brightened up the colors. I don't know if I should leave it the way it is or add a background.

Mari, this one looks final to me. No longer a study! I like the angle, it is pretty impressive. I remember seeing one at a hotel lobby but the flowers were coming from the upper left corner. Hey, your color scheme of course is more powerful than that one.

Must be because I'm right handed, that's why it's coming from the upper right hand corner.

Thanks, Nini.
