Oil Painting of Yellow Tiger Lilies, 11" x 14" on board

"Tiger Lilies"

It's been so rainy and gloomy here in Washington, that I thought I'd bring some sunshine into my studio. So Tiger Lilies were the pick of the day. These were fun flowers to paint. I used warm incandescent light for this set up as I started late in the day and there wasn't enough natural light in my studio. I love the way the light plays on the lilies and shines through. See the detail below.

This is very nice, it just glows. I'm a struggling new painter and I'm finding I enjoy painting still lifes more than anything else. Yours are very, very nice. I'll bookmark you so I can check back often for inspiration. Barb

The warm colors make you feel warm and fuzzy. Also being a fellow artist I like how you showed your close up. Pat
