    Paphiopedilum Toni Semple album (watercolour painting)

    Here is a small watercolour painting I have just completed. It is of my P. Toni Semple album (lowii album x haynaldianum album). It took me much longer than expected because I have been very distracted by trying to find my missing cat (Fabi), who has been lost since 12th Feb. now.
