In this art tutorial, you will learn how to draw and then paint an orchid. You will need a Chinese paintbrush, a plate for the paint, water and paper. For paint colors, you should make sure you have red, yellow, black, green, blue and purple. First, dip your brush into the water and then mix yellow, red and black, dabbing some of each color onto the brush. When doing this, do not actually mix the colors on the brush. You want the red on one part of the brush, the yellow on another part, and the black on yet another part. Then dab the brush with the side that has the paint on it onto the paper to create multi-tonal petals. You will repeat these steps, using green and black to draw the stem and leaves. Follow the steps in this video tutorial to learn how to paint a professional looking orchid in a matter of minutes.
