There are many challenges in painting this beautiful lily flower and I suspect for most, the slightly submerged leaf and beads of water will be a daunting prospect. It needn’t be. I’ll show you how to master it with a simple method that requires little more than understanding how colour influences what we see and perceive. This painting is better suited to the more advanced artist, but I’d encourage everyone to give it a go. I chose to keep this painting relatively small but there’s no limit to how large you can go if you have the time!
Painting Size: 12 x 12
Brushes used in this lesson: Michael James Smith Professional Brush Set
In August 2019 Michael switched brush manufacturers from Rosemary & Co to PalettePro and as a result the series numbers/names are different in some of the lessons. In order to be able to complete the lessons regardless of which set you’re using we have put together a chart which lists the equivalent brushes from both sets.
