Sunlit Red Lily, 9x12
This is another gorgeous red lily from my garden on a very bright sunny day, probably during my morning cruise around the garden with my cup of tea (and, of course, my camera). It's a good size, 9x12", and I got a good start on it with the underpainting, so the challenge for me is to keep the drama of the lily itself and portray the glare of the sun on the background of foliage and other lilies. (What? Dueling focal points?--stay tuned.) I have a few appointments today so I'm not sure if I'll have any time to paint, but I seriously can't wait to get started.
