Shirley Bond

  • Painting Technique : I sketched the outline of the lily and then filled in the background but found trying to get the shimmer of the water very difficult.
  • I also found trying to get a bright color tone difficult for the lily- it was either too pink or too red.
  • This looked like an easy study but it was not.

Hi Shirley, I will second that thought, what looked like a quick easy piece was most difficult. The reflections were tough and inded hard to catch that color. Nice work though

I saw your problem with your oils on your blog ,if you want to keep oils especially if you have a colour mixed you don't want to loose but haven't got time to finish,cover the paint and put it in the fridge or freezer and it will remain usable for quite a while.All the best,Syls
