Wild orchids on Mellow Yellow

 
 
 
It was in the end of May, and I woke during the night with the vision of flowers painted like this :) The base color is Essence 51 Mellow Yellow, and before painting the flowers in acrylic color I sponged the tips with Nubar Reclaim. They made me think of a protected wild orchid (Dactylorhiza maculata) called Gøgeurt in Danish, comes in a few sub species.
I must admit: I was pretty pleased about this one!!
Fun fact: Raggio de Luna doesn't really like yellow, but immediately when she saw my swatches of this color she wrote: "you ARE going to put some tiny little flowers on it, yes?" - and since every flower is very tiny, I had to ask her if she had access to my computer LOL - so these are kind of for you Tanja!
Det var I slutningen af maj, og jeg vågnede en nat med ideen til at lave blomster som disse :)
Grundfarven er Essence 51 Mellow Yellow, og før jeeg malede blomsterne med akrylfarve duppede jeg spidsen af neglene med Nubar Reclaim. Blomsterne fik mig til at tænke på den vilde orkide Gøgeurt (Dactylorhiza maculata), som vi har i området, og som findes i forskellige underarter.

  15. Thank you, Maria, so kind of you! :-)
    It's been really a looong time since I received some flowers, so I just don't care if other bloggers want them, they are mine and I take them! :-)
    Yes, it's true, I don't like yellow as colour, but I did like this yellow when I saw the swatch :-)
    Well, I was pretty sure that you were going to put some flowers on it :-))) And, your choice of flowers is excellent! I think that Dactylorhiza maculata that you draw is one of the masterpieces of your nail art! Who doesn't know this type of flower should search for the immages on internet (as I just did), and then see how good you made them! :-)
    Beautiful work and beautiful choice of colours! :-)
    P.S. It's a pitty that I didn't steal this from you while it was still in your computer, maybe I will try to copy it :-)
