thirty eight

Lilies in Bud; casein on board; 7" x 4.375"
Some subjects ask to be painted loose and others lean to tightening up. These lily buds were definitely in the later category.  I left as much raw-rough color as I could but in the end, a fairly refined painting revealed itself. 
I may paint this set-up again as the lilies open.  Maybe it will be a looser painting.  We'll have to see what the lilies say.
