November Plant Parade - Lilies

Hi everyone, I'm your Host for this November Plant Parade and the topic is;
THE LILY

Lilies - such a variety of species of Lilies - Arum Lilies, Calla Lilies, Canna Lilies, Day Lilies, Nerine Lilies, and of course the much loved Oriental Lilies.
Any type of Lily is acceptable. So lets make this Plant Parade an interesting and exciting one, with lots of different variety of Lilies.


There's just a few guidlines;
Please don't post your paintings until "reveal day" which is the 25th of November

Crop, enlarge, distort, play, manipulate a reference in any way you wish.

All media are welcome, Paint, Pen, Pencil, Pastel, Digital, mixed and collaged or however you want to represent them. Any method of applying the medium is acceptable too. Discuss, banter with others about your choice(s), your successes, finds and/or difficulties in this thread, but reveal nothing until 25th!

If you subscribe to the thread it's easier to keep up with all the communications.

I've posted 3 photos from my own garden, the rest are from the RIL

Re: November Plant Parade - Lilies

Viv - thank you so much for stepping in for November - and glorious lilies!
I love those nerines - I lost mine somewhere so must buy more!

Plenty of scope here for gorgeous brushstrokes!

Thank you for such rich choices!

Re: November Plant Parade - Lilies

Maureen, Christel, Kay M, Joanne, Rundun/Imelda, and Elaine and Blue - I'm glad you like my choice for this month's Plant Parade! Thank you.

Elaine - so pleased to see you here with us again!
Tablets are tricky - I've a Samsung Note 10.1 (the same as Maureen's I think). I love it but find I can't quite do everything I want to on it, I still have to go to my pc most days, as it's easier to do some things on it. e.g. copying and pasteing on my tablet is a bit of a mission....far simpler to use the control keys on my pc.

Blue -I've a feeling I'm going to regret asking this: -
but what's a "night lily?"

Re: November Plant Parade - Lilies

Viv....everyone has pictures of 'day lilies' because it's easy to photograph....but in the pitch black of evening, no one has been able to photo the beauty of a 'night lily'....so utilize your creative imaginations!....

can't wait to see the results on the 25th...my money is on Meggs to come up with that 'night lily'....

seriously, you did a great job with your selection of lilies....even got 'ha-ha' interested again!....
