White Lillies – Acrylic on Canvas Board – 7×10 inches
I had some leftover paint and decided to have another go at painting white lillies in acrylic. This was done totally freehand and no drawing. I just used my previous painting and reference photo as a guide. My palette was very limited: Titanium White, Phthalo Blue (green shade)(makes a lovely turquoise mixed with Titanium White), Green Gold and Cadmium Red. The greens were made with the blue and green gold, and a bit of white. I was looking to paint an impression of lillies, rather than going for too much detail. I also painted most of the background first – which I find easier to do with acrylics. As a quick study, I’m very happy with it.
As much as I hate wasting paper, I hate wasting Acrylic Paint. 🙂
