Lily Shadows

Lily Shadows
Lily Shadows by Terri Akins

Watercolor, 2009

19” x 24”

A painting that captures the details of sunlight on a field of lilies in bright orange and white. The reference photo for this painting was taken on a June day when a friend and I were visiting local gardens that were graciously opened up for tours one Saturday afternoon. I spent many moments photographing flowers, and when I took the reference photo for what later would be this painting, I remember running up to my friend and saying, “I think I have one for a painting!” After a day of hundreds of garden photos, I am happy to say, one made it to a painting.
