The colors of these Calla lilies are so gorgeous! ...And I love the shapes - like twisting fabric on dancers or flickering flames. I really wanted to push the look of movement in this composition. The flowers reminded me of flamenco dancers so I studied the shapes of the dancers' dresses. I also emphasized the sharp-tipped flame shapes and repeated them in the leaves as well as the flowers. I listened to salsa music the whole time I was painting this. The rhythms are so exciting you can't help but dance.
