Phalaenopsis orchid in acrylic

Hi everyone! my days have been busy  with  work,celebrating my birthday and then diwali  festival with my brothers family . 
So after making up some lost sleep I am back at painting .I wanted to do a larger painting of the phalaenopsis orchids.I choose the white phalaenopsis as they  are so popular . You find them on brochures of orchid producing companies all the time.
This painting I have planned to do in two sections with the bloom split into two canvas.The first one is done .Do also have a look at my phalenopsis in watercolor if you are new to my site.

This is another addition to my series of paintings on orchids.This orchid has been done in water colors.Flower has been highlighted with a rusty brick  red lip petal .The leaves were kept minimal but suggestion of other leaves and flowers are shown in the background with different washes.
Cattelya orchids are pot plants with beautiful flowers. There are many varieties with different flower colors in cattelyas.
