Orchid Stem

8 x 8"
oil on canvas
I toned this canvas with a wash of pthalo green before beginning...it had very strange effects. It sort of deadened every color I put down - even the greens didn't go on quite like I expected them to. I'm not unhappy with the painting, but I'm still not sure I'll try starting with pthalo green again.
