Red Lily - Floral Oil Painting on Panel

Red Lily, 4 x 4" oil on cradled panel 1.5" deep.
Getting ready for a show at the end of July and I've been very busy. I enjoy painting flowers... sometimes. This one turned out well. Flowers can be difficult to paint, especially in oils. I find it much easier in watercolour. This was about challenges. If we don't challenge ourselves we don't get better as artists. Lessons were learned painting this flower.

This is a small panel, I got these expecting to enter another show about small paintings but I was too busy to get the entry form done and take the paintings in. It will just appear in another show. This lily grows in my garden here in Grey County. I painted it using a photograph as a reference.
