Oil Painting of a Water Lily

Posted on


A six inch window into summer. In this small painting I focused again on making interesting, descriptive brush marks. Water lilies have this fresh, crisp elegance. The reflections add an interesting element, too. The water is deep and dark, and the bits of red ground bring the heat. Rivers and lakes of western Michigan have been a big part of family vacation and recreation for me. Canoeing, paddle boating, speed boating and swimming.
