Loose Lilies

Another practice on hotpress paper. I like this a lot ... though I'm finding doing such loose, washy subjects, I need to be more aware of leaving white space.

Oh this is glorious Lin. You have captured the looseness style so quickly so those classes really paid off -- and so soon.
Beautiful, and I think there's plenty of white space. Love it!
Hugs,
Lorraine

I think this hotpress paper is really allowing you to be beautifully loose!! You found the secret.

I LOVE it!! Yes, you've really got the loose look, but more. . . the use of color values really stands out to me. The buds in the background are REALLY behind the full flowers. Just excellent, Lin!!

The effect is gorgeous. And your EDM challenge 93, the eggs, are so well colored too!

I think botanicals are your thing, Lin. And you really did loosen up.
