In preparation for a portrait painting I made this pastel drawing to bring together the figure, which was drawn some time ago, and some of Jacqui's favourite flowers - Day Lilies:
Pastels on paper, 59x43cm.
The Lilies started out as a much larger bunch bought about two weeks ago, but every other day J discards the lilies that are totally done in and cuts the remainder shorter to get a couple more days out of them. Then I squash them up into a more vertical format to suit my purposes.
So these lilies are the flowers that just keep giving!
ps: the painting ain't going well :o(
