Daylilies and Vaseline Vase
My Daylilies are just about done blooming. They have been exceptionally pretty this year. It may be because of the cold cold winter that we had here in the South. I bought this beautiful little Vaseline glass vase on Etsy last week and was so excited to paint it. The color is even more vivid in natural sunlight, but, my studio has eaves which prevent much light from coming into the studio. So, I painted from ambient light during mid morning. I did a preliminary sketch which you will see below before I began painting. It helps me with the composition. I did change it somewhat because of the way that the painting progressed.
