I love calla lilies, especially the pink/purple ones. I think I will paint some of them using pictures from this video.

Calla Lily in Acrylic

Posted by | April 5, 2012 | 0 Comments

Calla lily is also one of my favorite flowers. Calla lily originates from South Africa, and is utterly elegant with its simple form outlined in gracious curves. The smooth sweep of the petal-like spathe encloses the columnar stamens, capturing shadows and holding light in the most enticing ways.

I spent more than 3 hours to paint this calla lily. I found it’s hard to paint the smoothness of the petals and the way shadows follow the curving shape.
