From the ‘Beauty of Orchids – China’ series.

An endangered species. It is painted in Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden and exhibited 5 different botanic gardens across China. Aim of the project was to highlight the decline in many species in the wild and to create greater awareness of the impact of buying wild orchids for their ornamental use.

All illustrations are painted in watercolor on Fabriano paper, 300 gsm. I still have an old batch of my favourite paper, Fabriano 5! I always work from live specimens and with scientific support from experts in the species. Plants are drawn and painted life size. Paintings will be delivered without mounts and frames, and will be sent with a certificate with your name. The prices include postage.

If you would like to have a closer look, the original paintings can be seen at Evin Art Gallery, Istanbul.
