While many of us draw our inspiration from our immediate natural surroundings, very few of us are fortunate enough to live in locations where the flora is quite so breathtaking as the naturally occuring orchids that Dina has painted.
Her talent, color sense and patience is obvious as she translates photos that she has taken into mini watercolor paintings. White ATC size Art Squares are the ideal surface for Shinhan watercolor paints as the surface is so similar to a hot press paper. She was able to layer colors repeatedly without surface deterioration or having to pretreat the painting surface.
Be sure and visit her blog, Mama Dini's Stamperia, to see the original photos that served as her inspiration, as well as the other orchid that she painted - hard to believe they are only 2.5" X 3.5" ATC size Art Squares!
