Calling All Callas

24x18 watercolor work in progress is finished! I opted for a soft grey neutral background without any of the bold brightness of my usual work.  After all, calla lilies are wedding flowers and deserve an elegant setting even if it is only a painting.  I may glaze its background one more time but do think it is done.  I did add a middle lily by negative painting the shape, and do need to soften edges throughout.
