Almost Finished...




Sunlit Lily - 22" x 15", Transparent Watercolor.
It's close to being finished. I have to add the black dots that are speckled all over the petals, remove the masking fluid, and complete the stamens and anthers. I like how it looks without the black dots and am a bit nervous about adding them, but all the Oriental Lilies I've seen have the dots.
