It didn’t really take much to make me happy, just bringing back some of the greens on the left and adding some more white fluff to the top. Here’s a little slide show so you can get an idea of how many times this painting transformed itself.
Someone (wish I could remember who) suggested that I go out to the Mill Pond and take some early spring photos of the just emerging lily pads. I demurred, saying there wouldn’t be much to see. I was wrong. I’m not sure what to do with the photos yet–I’m really excited with them–but I’ll save that for another post.
It ended up being a really lovely painting of the life in a pod. And it was fun to see the process through all the stages.
Your lily pads are just so wonderful. We have some half despicable ones, in the now-drying out small pond. They should be ashamed of themselves compared to this. Still think about your paintings when I see them!
