"Oriental Lilies" Watercolor Painting

This painting was done in Jan Foss's class, but I chose to do something different than the other students. Normally, Jan shares her reference photo collection of flowers and landscapes for us to choose our own to paint our own composition from. But in this case, I bought some flowers and brought them in to paint live. That turned out to be a good idea. You can learn so much more and understand your subject more when it is right there in front of you. Photographs only show one view. Another benefit was that I continued working at home with the flowers.
