Day Lily #4

Day Lily #4, Acrylic on Paper, 5"x7", $100
This day lily is a variety that I got from my husband's late mother's garden.  It continues to grow and multiply in our yard.  I especially love the deep red-orange petals and the golden yellow throat.  For this painting, I used my palette knife to apply Golden Open acrylic paint on gessoed watercolor paper.  There is a bright orange underpainting that shows through here and there.
