Water Orchids

wm2fish 017bnw

 

Finally finished this piece! I decided to name her “Water Orchids”.

I created her on a piece of 14 X 17″ Canson recycled bristol.
Tools were a .5 mechanical pencil, a .3 mechanical pencil, a .7 mechanical pencil, tortillian stump and an eraser stick.

Inspiration?
First came the face that I stumbled upon online.
Then I adopted 2 Black Moore goldfish named Sperg and Merbles who make their appearance.
The ice I saw in when driving into Philly. It was caked up and building on the walls on the side of the mountains. It was beautiful.
The Orchids are what ties this piece together. In the language of flowers the orchids symbolize a delicate beauty.
I am choosing to leave all deeper thoughts of this piece to myself so I won’t taint the viewers view.

Here is a step by step of “Water Orchids” You can follow the process on my Instagram or Facebook. I also include some videos of the process as well on those sites.

Prints are available on this website and on Etsy
