White Lily Watercolor #4

Now we get down to the details, take a look up close at the flower. I have removed the mastik (resist) and begin darkening the main characters. The greens behind are shadowed using reds with the greens to make a dark shadow. Some are darkened with paynes grey or blue. The white fklower has a slightly sap green core or bowl with the main vein gong down the middle of each petal. It seems the edges of the petals are the most white areas. I approach the white areas very carefully. The center stamen area has slightly green stems with yellow ends and they seem to stand out better with the roundness exemplified.
