Lilies watercolor, a flower paint with beguiling scent

But Lilies watercolors do not smell!

I bought large-flowered pink lilies for my new flower watercolor. When I brought them home, all the flowers were closed. After a few days the first pods opened and, with their crescent-shaped green leaves, they get arranged very well for a bouquet to paint a lily painting. The more flower heads have opened the more beguiling was the fragrance in my studio.

Who does not know this typical lily smell. Sweet, exotic and very heavy. Some people, like me, succumb to this scent, others get headaches. Sensory perceptions are known to be subjective and every flower lover has to decide for himself which scent he finds agreeable.

Hildegard von Bingen even claims that the lily scent repels depression and helps to ward off misperceptions. I can imagine that somehow, the Beelzebub with a strong smell distribute. Incidentally, I have read that this flower aroma on men should aphrodisiac, but most do not like this smell at all!

I tried to find out the mystery how and why the flowers give off their scent. When lilies smell it comes from the flower scars. Flowers produce scents to attract bees, butterflies and other insects, because the sweet scent promises nectar. Anyone who has paid attention at school knows the history of pollination.

But the main thing was to paint a picture of this majestic flower. It was a lot of fun to be inspired by her look and the fragrance. So, this flower painting has come out.

Once this lilies watercolor has found a place, then you can not smell the lilies but you can always look at them again.

Have lots of fun with it!

PS: For this flower picture I used a watercolor cardboard of Fabriano 640 g / m², with a format of 76 x 56.
