Lilies – Day 2 of 30 in 30

You know – at first glance this looks pretty fabulous.   But it isn’t.  The stark contrast between the dark background and the white petals is doing most of the heavy lifting here.   The detail just isn’t cutting it.

But that’s ok.   This is a style I have never painted in before and fancied having a go at.  I rapidly found I didn’t really know what I was doing.    Have I learned anything?  No, not really.   It’ll take a few days before I can work out what needs to change.

  1. What a wonderful composition, Michele! Their endearing position next to each other –as if two old friends or better than friends, who knows– is delightful and your mastery at watercolour is evident!

    1. Many thanks Laurelle. You’re right the composition is great although I can’t take credit for that as I pinched the photo from a free library đŸ™‚ Great fun to do though.
