Lillies in the Afternoon by Marriet

These lovely ladies were stretching to see over the fence so I stopped by and made friends with them.
Warm color for the flowers to bring them forward, a cool blue on the fence for contrast and the green background to go off in the distance.

Acrylic on Canvas 16" X 20"

I started drawing for my son, who was fascinated with it as a child. I took a few classes in colored pencil and watercolor and found the company to be exceptional, and have loved the art world since.

    Really nice – especially like the composition and colors.

  • Thank you very much Eldon. This is probably the first painting where I consciously used color for the background to recede, the focus to come forward.
