Flower of the Month: Lily of the Valley

Happy May Day!

I'm so excited that May is officially here.   April was a really snowy month here in upstate New York.  I think we can finally say goodbye to winter and welcome the warmer weather!!  WHOO-HOO.

This month we are celebrating Lily of the Valley flowers here at Lila Grey.    Lisa drew a elegant, but simple version of these flowers.   Since they are traditionally white I chose to focus the color on the background rather than the flower.  It really helps the flowers pop!

The colors I used are listed below.  The biggest trick to getting the sky to look right is work quickly so the "edges" of your coloring do not dry.  If part of your coloring does dry before finishing it will create streaks.  These are really hard to remove.

Happy Spring!!

Copics used:
Sky: B95, B93, B91, B52, B21, B00, B000
Green: G00, G02, G05, G07, G19
