strength in numbers

(291) Lilies
8 x 10, oil
For this painting, I chose a muted color palette for a more serene look and feeling.

I really like the nice subtle color harmonies you've achieve here. It's so easy to over do the colors of flowers. You've shown nice restraint.

Thanks, Ed and Marian.
I'm just trying to step out of my comfort zone a little-microscopic steps, but steps all the same.
Thanks for visiting,
