In my prior post I discussed Vermeer’s use of light in his painting, The Milkmaid. The light source was coming from the window on the left side. In my above painting, Orange Lily, the light source is coming from above. I used muted darker tones to help turn the petals. Unlike Vermeer’s low vantage point, I used an overhead vantage point. The viewer can gaze down into the flower and understand the lily’s form.
