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?
