One of my current commissions is a gift, from a husband to a wife. The brief was calla lilies and a dark background, to hang alongside a passionflower painting I had been previously commissioned to paint.
I wanted the lilies to symbolise an enduring togetherness, where its almost but not quite impossible to tell where one lily starts and another begins. And you cannot decide who is leaning on whom, sometimes its one, sometimes its the other.
This is a paintlet, about 20 cm across. Which serves as a sample for colour match and composition. I am going to build a deeper, more passionate purple/pink into the petals.
