Superb !

I look forward to your future paintings. Any idea what species you're going to work on next ? And will you do requests ? :D

Yeah Ill do requests, Im sticking with Nepenthes for now. Im just drawing a Globosa now, as its a photo in public domain so i dont have to worry about copyrights. I wanted to do a Bicalcarata but cant find any images with correct licencing

Thanks Jim, Im still getting to grasps with watercolors, normal i paint with acrylics and if you make any mistakes its easy enough to paint over,... Man watercolor isnt very forgiving, the paper especially. Iv started making the drawing on a separate paper where i can make mistakes and get it together and then tracing it to the watercolor paper, as it really dos not like to be rubbed, lol

making initial sketch on separate paper is a good idea .But be careful when tracing on to water colour paper .Keep a light touch  so as not to show through finished paint

kind regards
