Yesterday, as I stood by the window overlooking our garden, I could not but remember how it used to be filled with bright yellow day lilies all summer long!

The winter this year has dumped so much snow, I have barely seen the ground in the last couple of months! Dark grey days like these truly inspire me to paint something bright and cheery and colorful.

I chose to paint some lilies  and here is the supply list.

Niji Chinese Watercolors

Niji waterbrush

Stamps-Clearly Besotted and Papertrey Ink

Stamp the image

Color the flower and dampen the area around it with water.

Drop in the background colors..I have used grey, brown, green  and blue .

Once dry, stamp the sentiment.

a closer look…

Spring is right around the corner and very soon these lilies will be blooming, until then let’s paint some!
