Lilies on White is a Lovely Sight
The inspiration for “Lilies on White” came from a huge Easter Lily that we got from Costco last Spring. My process begins with a collection of deadheaded flowers from the prosperous garden at our home in SW Denver, or, in this case, from our dining room table. My wife, Kathy, then photographs them and uploads the the pictures to be digitized. I work with the images in a photo enhancement software to adjust placement, values, shadows, contrast, and focus and compose a working draft. The final artwork is created with oil paint in my studio (which, at times, is located in the Great Room of our home) on either panel or canvas with brush and/or palette knife.
