"Lily in the Sky sans Diamonds" by Jane LaFazio

 “Lily in the Sky sans Diamonds”
13″ x 9″

“The sun print was done on pre-treated watercolor paper (see resource list in the March/April 2010 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors). I layered a transparency with the drawing of the lily with an actual lily on top, and let the sun make the print. After I rinsed and dried it, I drew a contour drawing of a lily with white colored pencil directly on the sun-printed paper. I painted the lily with gesso mixed with water to make it slightly transparent. The final touch was using spray gesso and a piece of lace as a stencil in the lower left corner.”
