Back in early July, I painted this yellow daylily, which we have growing in a very non-conspicuous place on the side of the garage. The true color of the flower was eye-poppingly bright, but paint can only do so much to render those amazing colors found in nature! I enjoyed painting much larger than my usual sketches, this was on 9"x12" thin (too thin) watercolor paper. I am still used to working smaller but enjoyed the splattering and other fun effects I can use more to my advantage on a larger painting. Daylily, watercolor, 9"x12".
