Added some more perm rose and tran yellow in spots. Then went over it with sap green. Added a little more of the tran yellow and green mixture to the center and went over the bud with more yellow.


layered some thalo green, perm rose and transparent yellow on the background. Then added some tran yellow with a little bamboo green in the center, Bamboo green + tran yell on the stems. I know you are thinking whats up with the pink! I use it allot when creating my dark backgrounds especially if there is going to be pink in the flower.

The start of a beautiful Pink Day Lily. Drawn out on Arches 140lb CP paper, with the center masked off.
I am also starting another lily (wine and yellow) I will post that one later. I have just been itching to paint, paint, paint. I did the roses and a new color chart since the weekend but it just does not seem to be enough. I can’t sleep at night, I keep waking up wanting to paint. Does anyone else get like this?
