PURPLE ORCHID

Everything’s Coming Up Purple…

The Pantone Colour of 2018 is 18-3838 Ultra Violet. Considering that purple is one of my least favourite colours, I’ve been unusually obsessed with it for months now. Can’t say I was surprised when I found out what the pantone colour of the year is. I’ve been holding back, (like I said, not a fan of purple) but everything I want to paint now features a violet.

This need to paint with purple can be shown in last weeks post Purple Water Lily. It also discusses how I came to purchase my own violet oil paint. And now that I have it, I must use it. And use it I will! So I found another purple flower to reference from iStock. A purple orchid this time.

Everything went rather smoothly I have to say. The sticking points on this flower was the middle and getting the colours and details in there. I might have to find a smaller brush.

I’d say I got 75% there. Room for improvement, but not bad.

What do you think? Are you obsessed with purple too this year?
