 I bought these lillies before the weekend expecting them to open quite quickly.  They didn't!  So I decided to go ahead and paint them in bud and will hopefully get a second painting out of them once they are fully in flower.

El Agua, Water,

 A painting for the Venezuelan Watercolour Association, AVA virtual exhibition. "Water" was the theme of the exhibition, and although I live right on the water it has been far too cold to sit out and do a painting.   I have been enjoying the challenge of painting glass and including either pewter or brass trays so this is what I decided to submit.

I like the challenge of painting glass.

                                      Some glass collected over the years on a pewter tray.

These lillies have lasted so well.

 Eight days on and buds are still opening on these lillies,  they have also become more perfumed as the days pass.

These Lilies came from Aldi too!

 It was a race to paint the lilies, they literally open before your eyes, faster than I could paint them in fact!
