Orchid study in watercolour

The first two weeks of June 2011, I was in Normandy and Picardy, situated in Northern France. “Les orchidees sauvages” was the name of a farm where we stayed, and behind it, there were the orchids flowering. I did a quick study in watercolour of the Pyramidal Orchid, Anacamptis pyramidalis, showing an impression of plant habitus.  
The botanical studies by Blaschka, being preparatory materials to glass models concentrate on detail and exact form to be recreated in models. They may look stiff, but actually, they show what can be reproduced in glass.
