Illustrator of the Week: Linda Petchnick

Linda's watercolor flowers

I have chosen Linda Petchnick for her orchid illustrations since i'm working on an orchid painting myself at the moment. I love the colors she uses and she is painting in watercolor, which is the medium i'm using as well. Although there's no real close up of the paintings, even from what is shown, it is evident her work is very detail oriented.

What I can learn from Linda: detail can exist in watercolor, and even her white petals are not stark white.
