Day mixed media...purple orchid

This is day 5 of the Painting a Day Challenge, a purple orchid.  I wanted the piece to look like a watercolor, it does but it was painful to digitally paint for me.  I've got a couple more that I want to do in the series because it is a learning curve for me.  After that...well, I may go back to painting watercolor in the traditional way.  With a brush and paint on paper.
Later Gators,
