15x22 watercolor on 140 lb Saunders cold press paper, painted from my own amaryllis blooms. I intentionally left the background the white of the paper so the lilies would stand out. With only reds and greens, this complementary color palette has been successful for me the many times I've used it. This painting is featured now on the Florals/Botanical forum channel on WetCanvas during February's monthly challenge for the plant parade.
