Yellow Daylilies

I love these dwarf variety of yellow Daylilies that I have growing in my yard:

I decided to sketch them with a brown Micron pen before I painted them in watercolors as you see in the photo below on the left.  I then cut simple shapes from paper that I previously painted with watercolors to create a more freeform design on the right:

I had fun experimenting in my art journal on a cool Sunday afternoon.

Happy Painting!  🙂

  10. Lovely paintings, Jill. I like how you did 2 different styles. I think I have a day lilly in the front. A cutting from a friend. It’s just flowering now.
