Petals starting to fall-- Lilies
Hi, I'm working on a new lily painting. I need to work quickly.The petals are falling! Although I do have photos to use, if I can I prefer to work from life in flowers.. anyway-- I may put another lily in the bottom,-- I'll see how it goes.. I wanted to paint a watercolor with a few of the beautiful lilies from my friends yard. Some of my lilies are blooming now, I planted a bushel basket of orange daylilies on the ditch bank 20 years ago and they are so graceful and beautiful, They are blooming now.So here is the beginning of this new lily painting. Soon the Sterretts Daylily Garden here on the Eastern Shore will be open. They have an acre and a half of gorgeous daylilies-- yes they sell them . Talk soon, Diana Oh yes, I'm so excited, I've got a new brush coming!! Should get it this week.
