Moth Orchids

G'day girls this is the flower for Monday nights lesson, it is a good one to practice your painting on, you can make it plain white like this with a coloured head, or it comes in other colours like yellow or cerise
Myths and legends surround the sensuous orchid. The very name Orchid is derived from the Greek word-meaning testicle. Claimed to be an aphrodisiac, it was perhaps the first Viagra, when the testicle like roots were crushed and eaten to stimulate sexual activity. Don’t try this at home!!! Hope you enjoy the class!!
Love Jenni xx
