Pink Lilies

Lilies are the most difficult flower to paint - at least that I've encountered so far. I think it's because the value differences are so slight - it's hard to show what the petals are doing without getting way too fussy with the detail. With red roses, for example, you get some really luscious darks - these lilies just don't have that. They're pretty, though!
