[ORCHIDS] Study sketch of Paphiopedilum praestans

Alongside with the Paphiopedilum gloucopyllum illustration, I am working on the colour test of Paphiopedilum praestans before all the flowers wither and flop. This study will guide me to paint the illustration with proper colours.

The first flower withered and just flopped this afternoon, slightly turned more yellowish :(

@Jessica Rosemary Shepherd, thank you for leaving a kind comment :) Cheers from Indonesia.

@Veronica, Thank you :)
This sketchbook was handmade by a friend of mine, using my favorite watercolour papers (specifically made for the orchids project). But, I can recommend you to try moleskine's watercolour notebook. It is great for watercolour washes.
