I painted this yesterday. I really like this one, I think I achieved the goal I had of getting these glads to "glow" because of being backlit. I find that backlit lighting is my favorite sometimes. I might do a little more to this but doubt it.

You could say that I'm on a "glad" kick right now. I'm already planning the next one!

This painting is 11 x 15 inches on Arches 140 lb cp paper. I used some watercolor pencils a little bit in some places.

It's called "Backlit White Glads"

Wow girl! You've painted a beautiful Glad. I love everything thing about it.

now one little thing... I hate to even say this becaue the piece is great, but I think it could be an award winner with one little change.


The background If it were me I would have brought the blue across to the green or vice a versa just a wee bit so the background is compositionally more united.
