Calla Lily Island
Digital Art - Digital Painting - Design
If you have seen my portfolio you would already know that I adore Calla Lilies. It is of no real surprise that I love to create with these beautiful blooms, and this time it's painted Calla Lilies on an Island of their own with shimmering water and dusky pink shades. Here is a little of the botanical information on Call Lilies that may interest some.
Zantedeschia is a genus of herbaceous flowering plants in the family Araceae, native to southern Africa from South Africa north to Malawi. The name of the genus was given as a tribute to Italian botanist Giovanni Zantedeschi (1773�1846) by the German botanist Kurt Sprengel (1766�1833). Common names include arum lily for Z. aethiopica, calla, and calla lily for Z. elliottiana and Z. rehmannii although it is neither a true lily (Liliaceae), nor Arum nor Calla (related genera in Araceae).
