Lily of the valley

Pencil drawing

First layer of acrylics

After that spate of architectural commissions in March and April, I decided an acrylic painting or two might be in oprder.  My lily of the valley had started blooming in the front flower beds and I proceeded to work from a few photos I had taken of them.  Easier said than done.  The foliage and the shadows got quite complicated in a big hurry.  My eyes and brain needed a break so here is where I stopped.

    One of my favorite flowers for its fragrance! Another beautiful painting is on its way!

    Mine, too! I have a little vase that I use to put some in after I pick them. I put it on my kitchen counter and even a few put out quite the aroma. Did you know that both the leaf and flowers are poisonous?
