The pond


Slowly but surely, I am working my way through my acrylic dumps
on yupo.
This time, I didn't want to cover up the background so added my frogs
after the background had dried.


An update on the orchid that fell in the pool in February.
I pulled it out of it's pot, trimmed up the roots and repotted it.
I think it survived quite well, don't you

Happy PPF!

  6. I love your pond painting, it's beautiful. I've never tried acrylics on yupo, just watercolors. Did you water them down much?
    Your orchid seems to be very alive, so I guess you did a real good job with it.
