WIP Day Lily – It’s Finished!

I removed the mask, darkened petals some more and lifted out some highlights, added color to the center with green gold and Indian yellow, used lemon, quin gold and a mixed orange for the filament. I also added a little more quin red + vermilion to the back ground. I am glad to be done, can’t wait to start the next ones, so its off to the drawing board. I hope you have enjoyed this, and I hope everyone has a fantastic night!

Continued with darkening the background some more and adding more layers of quin red and vermilion to the petals
