After the flower was painted, I began the background.

It took a couple of passes before my background colors were dark enough. While the paint was still a little damp I spritzed a little water for the starbursts in the background.
This isn’t great, but it’s passable, and you can at least tell that it’s a lily! Maybe my next one will be better.
This was painted on a quarter sheet of Arches 140# hot press.

I think this is a very beautiful lily and you did a wonderful job on the background. I have never used hot press paper.

Thanks Christiane - I don't use it often, but sometimes it's kind of fun to make a change.
