Dramatic Lilies

Oil Painting Still Life Art Flowers Vase

Oil on canvas hardboard, 14" x 11".

The day lilies were painted against a white background so it was nearly a study in white on white to me.  I thought that each lily seemed to be vying to be the most dramatic of the three so I played up that thought and vision.
