Lily - not sure the type

Hi this was my first attempt at painting a flower. Ever since i have been hooked. Its painted in acylic on 4 separate canvas so that they can be spread out.

Let me know what you think

Great idea. First flower - you're a natural.

It looks huge, is it?

Hi from the bottom of the South Island! How's Palmerston North these days? I bet the weather's been better there than it has been here.
This is lovely and does look huge, what size is each canvas? It must have taken some time to paint. Well done.

Re: Lily - not sure the type

Hi Everyone. THank you for all your lovely comments. Its not very big the 4 small separate canvas are 200x200 so when they are all joint up its 400x400. Im not sure what this works out to be in inches.

Viv - Hi from the north. Palmy weather is never what you expect yesterday we had miserable weather and today nice blue skies so hmmmm.
I hope its starting to warm up down there.
What type of artwork do you like to do??

Re: Lily - not sure the type

Hi Sarah; in answer to your above question - I post my work in this Forum, the Pastel Forum and the Acrylic Forum (but I'm a beginner in acrylics, so we'll see). I enjoy painting; flowers, animals, still life, and landscapes, in most mediums. Have you checked out the Monthly Challenge in this Forum? It's painting "blue flowers" this month and should be a lot of fun. You'll find the link at the top of the Florals Forum page.
