LILY POND - contemporary waterscape

"Lily Pond" - sold
24"x24"-oil on canvas

A lily pond at a local park.
I think this is the first time I have ever painted a
lily pond and I really liked my result. It has quickly
become a favorite of mine.

Really beautiful! But for what are the two 'underpaintig'-circles right down in the water? Stones fallen in?

Linda Apple said...

Hey Dana, Big thanks!!Glad you enjoyed it!

Rudhi,
Wow, you really looked at the details! Actually there are 3 circles... they are little ripples from fish coming to the surface.
Glad you enjoyed it! :)

RUDHI - Chance said...

Yah, its a wonderful balance to the lilies!

This is absolutely beautiful! A very different take on the subject of water lilies in a pond, which I have seen quite a number of recently. Most of them are lovely but typical and a bit boring...yours has a unique composition and I love your colours.

Hi Karen,
Wow, what great compliments! So glad you enjoyed my lily pond. I really enjoyed doing it as a 24x24....but after it was done, I thought it would be great as a 36x36! Oh well! THANKS!!! :)

I was confused by the circles, too. Glad you thought to catch those! Little things too often get overlooked, but they are what they are and they're part of the scene!
