Paint orange lilies

I photographed this beauty at the Franklin Park Conservatory. I shot her surrounded by her peers, but decided that in the painting she needed the stage all to herself. To keep her in the spotlight, I surrounded her with a rich, complimentary color of deep blue and used some shading and glazing to move everyone else into the background. This painting is two feet tall. I enjoyed painting a small subject on a larger scale. This work is on display and for sale at the High Road Gallery in Worthington, Ohio through July 30, 2016 (www.highroadgallery.org).  #art #oilpainting #flowers #fpconservatory #botanical
