WIP Drama Queen

Finally, Finally Finished!IMG_4266_new

After a rather lengthy hiatus from completing this painting distracted by a few commissions and a ducky diversion  I  finally got back to work on this painting.  I have to admit I have produced a number of large watercolours over the past two years and have been holding on to them.  Not entirely sure why – but I think they would look good in a show all together.

Drama Queen is a painting of Dizzy Lizzie lily. Say that three times.  Phew!  And they belong to the rather regal Oriental lily family.

If you don’t already know and love these beauties, with flowers often larger than your hand,  you may want to introduce formally yourself.  A garden royalty they would appreciate an admiring nod.  Lilies are among my absolute favourite blooms – likely stating the obvious as I paint them so often!

These lilies always live up to their royal statue by providing large and dramatic blooms each summer – if the deer do not get them.

April and May are the perfect months to plant summer blooming bulbs, including Oriental Lilies in the United States and Canada.

Florabundance- finally finished!

1 Feb

Feeeling pretty good about this piece. This watercolor painting of white azaleas seemed to take forever.  I thought it was completed a few days ago. Then I got looking at it with eyes all squinty.  I had to go back in with rose dore and push back some petals – they needed more distinction between them. And then later I got looking at it and went back in to sharpen up some of the shadows.  I am re-thinking my white floral series – this is tricky work. I have one more I have to do… actually two more… then I will be looking for some more intense colors to work with!
