Art Class - Arum Lilies
A zoom in on some Arum Lilies in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe/Tamara de Lempicka. I was aiming for a simplistic style and not realism. This is a practice piece before I do my final painting for the end of term. I have used white wax crayon as a resist on the flowers and then gone over with very diluted Acrylic paint like watercolour, gradually building up the colour. The green is more vivid than the photograph shows. The background took me longer than the flowers as I changed it's colour several times before I was happy with it.
