Sunlit Lily



"Sunlit Lily", 21" x 14", Transparent Watercolor
It's finished. This was a fun painting; I love working with bright, vibrant colors. It turned out to be a bit of a challenge as the masking fluid damaged the surface of the paper very slightly making it harder to achieve a sharp line in places. A challenge is good, though. It teaches you a thing or two.
