Water Lily by luckyraeve Water Lily by luckyraeve
'Water Lily' (SOLD)
Acrylic paint on 40" x 32" canvas.

Since this piece [link] is my most popular acrylic painting (and by popular, I mean with people who have viewed my work in person, not here on DA) I decided to make a similar painting...
it sold before I was even finished it. :iconlaplz:

the client got to see it when it was about 80% finished and requested that I shade the flower with 'rust' tones and since she already paid for it I happily obliged. :)

My crappy photo killed the depth in the flower's petals. :( So, like most paintings, it looks so much better in person.

P.S. Water lily stamen (?) (where the pollen comes from) remind me of those shammies people use to wash there cars with. :lol: or the tendrils on anemones. :)

I think it looks rather peaceful. Also, if you wanted to correct your camera's effects on your panting, you could use the free photo editor at photoshop.com. It can generally bring out details the camera seems to get rid of.

i already used photoshop to make some adjustments and what i have posted here was the best i could get it to look. oh wells, some day i will either get better at taking pictures or i'll buy a better camera. ;P
