Stargazer Lily




And Here is the completed painting..

Well, I figured it was time I do a large painting, I've been painting in ACEO size for so long, I figured I needed to get out my larger brushes and get to practicing before I forget how. So I started this macro of one of my beautiful stargazer lillies I bought myself awhile back, these lilies were the largest lilly's I had ever seen I kid you not, they were about 8x8 once fully opened. HUGE.. I'm almost finished with it, and hopefully won't ruin to terribly before I'm done. I also did a video of it, but not sure if I'll post it on youtube or not. but here it is. The size is: 14x17
