    You have done orchids justice in a way that is not often seen...it is as though they are floating lightly across the page, barely even whispering. Stunning!

    Hi, Thanks for your comment! Some books I would recommend would be Jean Haines, and Shirley Trevena. Michelle Brown as a great online course as well. Hope that helps!
