Water Lily Painting #2

'Sunkissed' 10x8 pastel
For this painting I did another technique with an ink drawing and wash then pastel. I had one big lily in the middle and I didn't like it at all so I brushed the whole painting off, sprayed it with fixative which made a nice dark background with my ink drawing still there. I think tomorrow I will take out my acrylics again.

Every morning your paintings greet me to start my day off so beautifully, but the past couple of days have been a particular joy -- I love your water lilies! They are absolutely mesmerizing and I can't stop staring at them. I want to walk right into your painting. I wish I could purchase this one.

Thank you so much! You have made my day with your comments! Keep watching, I have painted some smaller water lilies which will have smaller prices!

Oh no,,,I think you might also be the "queen" of water lilies too.
I really like the dark background on this one.

Karen said...

Karen, I think I have seen you on WetCanvas. Your water lilies are beautiful, love the color and looseness of the work
