Acrylic painting on canvas (lillies)

How long has it been since I bloged? been on the missing list in blog land for aaaaages, well I have a little bit of time on my hands so I though I would show you my latest painting it's a 16x20 canvas I used acrylic paint and charcoal for this one.

There's lots of layers to the background which I started without thinking what I was going to have as an image (eek) this made it really hard to decide what to add but in the end I went for flowers. Lillies are my favourite flower there's so many different types and there all so beautiful.

As you can see my drawing skills are still lacking the Lilly's are a bit iffy LOL but i tried and that's the main thing aint it i:-)
