My sister-in-law was sweet enough to give me a beautiful bouquet of flowers for my birthday which were so lovely I painted them! I also experimented with painting on a black canvas, which I really loved the result of, the flowers really pop and it gives a contemporary feel to a very classic flower.
Below, the first is a vivid piece featuring the classic oriental lily. (Did I mention how amazing these guys smell? ) The second is a white lily, caught in the process of still opening it’s silky, fragrant petals.
