Re: Calla Lily

Thanks. It's my first attempt at botanical illustration (subject only, no background).

Thank you for the kind words..

Watercolor can be a pain when there is a background, because you have to fuss with negative painting around the subject or else masking the subject when painting the background.

Basic botanical illustration avoids the tedium of doing the background. It's fun.
