HALF SHEET WIP: REVISITING A WATER LILY

Going back to this one I've done before but using more blues in the water. I like the separations at first, in the drawing, but then I don't like it as much in the painting. Need to merge the colors more along the lines and still have the indication of lines without harsh lines...or need to just get in there with ink after and separate them? Hmm...not sure where this one will lead me.




Working on this one when I start rushing the Stranded painting - that one is going to take calm, clarity and time.

Good idea - I always have a few paintings going at the same time, for the same reason.

This one's looking like it's going to be very pretty!

Well, this is looking calm and clear - good idea to have two very different paintings on the go

Thanks so much, Angela, Cathy and Laura! Angela and Cathy, it helps me do 2 at the same time so I don't get in and overwork one - well, that's the theory, anyway!
I've been popping by to see what you've been up to, Laura, just didn't leave a comment each time. I'm always checking out your new works - hope the holidays bring you many wonderful things!
