I found this lily on one of my zen strolls.

I became caught up in its orange color while looking down, inside its center. The Petals and stamens created lovely loose lines and soft blurred edges that led me in.

Orange can be such a vivacious color;  some have said, obnoxious.  You either love to use it. Or you don’t.

 

Yes.  Orange is bright.  But,  definitely fun.

I was I admit, judicious how…. I used the color. Monochromatically is usually a fairly safe way to go, while still playing up the brightness of the orange color.

  1. Thank you for the definitions of abstract, semi-abstract etc. I love your work and am so glad I found your website. I especially like the times you outline the exact steps you took in the painting, very helpful. I really like your semi-abstract landscapes. That is where I live.
