Then it got time to move out of the sketchbook and into the open.

Because I use Indian ink (and bistre) I like using Saunders Waterford watercolour paper.
Even when the package says ‘white’ it has a creamy colour and very little grain, the latter
making it perfect for detailed work.

The orchids bellow have had their blooming time and have completely dried out. The shapes
they take on are very beautiful to me. Like I said
before, they take on a different persona.
Blooming they were all looking pretty much the same, now they are their own person.
