I painted this lily twice. The first time I spent more than two hours trying to make it work and of course ended up with an overworked panel and a not so alive lily. I didn't want to give up and decided to wipe it off, what gave me relief and freedom, and to try it again. For the second time I focused on values and not details and tried to work as fast as I could... As a result I've got a lively flower study. Never give up!
