Day lilys are aptly named. Better do your sketches and color notes , because they won't look that way tomorrow. This one was in my back yard. I used my little guide book to color mixing to get the compliments right. Picking a petal to match the color , I took my sketch and a mental picture to the studio.

I'm posting the reworked " Breidablik Chapel " I did scrape this painting. It was drier than the other painting I scraped so the effect was different. I do think this rework is better but not because of the scraping. I used a photo and was able to add a little of the detail that was missing on the first...... I guess there are some parts I like better and some worse.
