Cymbidium sp. - green cymbidium

Coloured pencil on cotton rag
38 cm H x 45 cm W


This appealing green variety of Cymbidium orchid bloomed in my garden this past spring - it was a gift from an orchid-loving friend with a large collection. The lime green-yellow of the flowers makes an interesting contrast with the deeper green leaves. I have drawn the full spike of flowers in coloured pencil at about 1.5 times life size.
