Or Day Lily. I'm quite fond of day lilies although some don't go on for very long others seem to grow into big clumps with many flowering stems.
|'American Revolution' watercolour|
This one hasn't grown up to be clump yet but it's getting there. Now I thought it was called 'Chicago Blackout' but then I found a label, in a rare bout of tidying up, from an 'American Revolution' so now I'm thinking that's what it is, because I haven't got another dark red one.
You may think this painting is looking rather messy and that's because I used diluted gum arabic in the process with lots of spraying, squirting, blotting and lifting out. It's given some texture to it though.
