Painting Challenge

Tiger Lilies are my favorite flower. I have wild ones planted in a lot of different areas around my home that I transplanted from an old farmhouse in the country. The colors in this look better in real life...I could not get photo shop to adjust the colors or contrasts the way they look in the original painting. This is pastel on dark gray colorfix paper.


  1. Linn....this is absolutely beautiful....I love it!

  2. That is absolutely beautiful Linda. I still have to paint my flower, and I will, I am looking forward to it.

    Lilies are my all time favourite flower.

  3. When I was first learning to draw and paint this is what I chose to work. I sent for a seed catalog because it has page after page of Lilly, different varietys and different colors. I put a garden on a beige rug I bought at goodwill.

    They're fun to paint, aren't they! You did well with yours, you show nice depth but what i really like is how you did your leaves.

  4. That's beautiful, Linn. Tiger lillies are among my favorites, too. They have such beautiful colors.

  5. It is lovely Linn.Very dramatic colour.
