“Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it.” – by Lao Tzu
That includes me . . . I can’t resist. There is something very beautiful about waterlily’s and ponds, a tranquil sense of being comes over me when I look at them. Whether the scene is drenched in sunlight or it’s a rainy day, the sight of these delicate flowers is always calm and welcoming.
Yellow Waterlily, an acrylic painting (11×9) was done on Canson canvas paper using Liquitex and Atelier brands. I’ve always wanted to try my hand at painting a waterlily and transparent water. I wanted the waterlily to be the star in this production, so the challenge for me was in keeping the background muted, lessen any intensity of color, little if any hard edges, and then to develop some waviness to the images beneath the water.
I enjoyed painting this scene ~ thanks for checking in and visiting. Please click the image to see it in a larger size.
