Canna Lilies

Large watercolor on cold press paper
18" x 24"

Canna lilies are very common in India so when i saw a photo of this plant on Wetcanvas i had to paint it. The species have large, attractive foliage and horticulturalists have turned it into a large flowered, brash, bright and sometimes gaudy garden plant. It is one of the world's richest sources of starch and is considered an agricultural plant.
