|As you perhaps can see in the paintings,
I like to make them as natural as possible, to show people how
the plants grow in the nature, with limestone, dead leaves, mosses,
tree branches etc., also as you maybe can see, I like to make
them in an "old fashioned style", not as an "botanical
correct" illustration with staminodium, petals, sepals etc.
separated, but with the whole plant with flower/s in its natural
habitat, for instance you can see P.rothschildianum with Mount
Kinabalu in the background. The paintings I attached to the e-mail
are just samples of my work or pictures ordered from a friend
I have in Brazil, but if you wish, I take orders on specific
for example if you have a special plant/s that you would like
to order painted, you are most welcome. I also do portraits,
Regarding prices, I can tell you that there is two types and
that a picture in 30x40 cm, with details on flower, background
etc. (just like the P.hermannii) costs about 700DKK (approximately
90 US$), and a painting in 40x50 & 40x60 cm costs about 1.200DKK
(approximately 150 US$). As an example the picture of Phrag.
caudatum var. warscewiczianum, I had on exhibition in the EOC
2000 in Bella Center in April here in Denmark, and the price
was a little higher,
1.500DKK (200US$) because it took a little longer to make, as
you can see I have made a lot of work on the details, especially
in the background, with the waterfall, cliffs etc. made with
an airbrush.I don't think that 200$ is a lot for 12 days work,
do you? But the more paintings that you order the cheaper it
get's, as I give 10% discount if you order 5 paintings or more,
and 20% discount on 10 paintings or more.
Just now there is only a few of my illustrations on it, but I
am just as we "speak" working on it to get all of my
orchid pictures in on it. So it should be updated today, or the
following days. Hope to hear from you soon again, and all orders
will be welcome.
