Very beautiful! White Lilies must be quite a challenge in watercolor!

Hi Renate! Lovely work, I like the differents tones you used in your lilies.

Hello Helen:) Thank you so much:) This is a difficult one. For the different tones I used ashes from a sigaret. It worked very well! The color is much nicer then the gray watercolor!

Hi Renate!
Woww!
Beautiful lilies.
This is really a challenge but you did an excellent job!
I've been following your blog but haven't done any comments.
I see that you've been really active and really enjoyed your paintings.
I really loved the last painting,the one you did on yupo.
Seems like yupo is a little bit difficult to work with.
Keep up the good work!
Best wishes...
