Calla Lily ala Diego Rivera

I painted Calla Lilies several years ago; one field of Calla Lillies I gave to a very good friend.  A single Calla Lily was given to Stan's friend (who loved Calla Lillies)  This time around I had difficulties painting this flower.  I told an artist friend about my struggle with colour & he concurred with me that they are indeed hard to paint.  He said they have lavender, green, ochre, yellow, etc.  It is very easy to mix mud when mixing these colours.  But then a friend posted she liked this version and that it reminded her of Diego Rivera.  I wish I had painted mine before he did.  Oil on canvas panel  7" X 5"
