  1. What would I like to paint first? Well, the first thought that comes to mind is “all”, but if I can only pick one to start, I would wish to paint the daylily. I would love to learn a sumi-e technique for daylilies, but also see what you do with a watercolor technique that displays shading.

  84. I adore poppies. I’m ex army and they are a vivid reminder. I also love lilies, my Dad passed away a few years ago and his favourite was bright orange lilies, they don’t last long after blooming, I have many photos of them and flowers in my garden but would love to see a picture on my wall that I have done…people tend to paint the same mixes of matching flowers, I think all flowers match..so…. any chance you could do a min of lilies and poppies so that o could try do one with orange lilies and bright poppies. Thanks for whatever you do

  91. Hi Lindsey, I like the first one because I like the fence behind the flower, it adds depth to the picture. I will be painting this and see how it goes. And please don’t let some of these people get to you because I believe they are not pleased with themselves and this is how they release there feelings by making someone else feel bad too. Your a wonderful person and I enjoy watch all your videos. You do a very good job teaching us.
