Every summer I visit a lotus pond at a nearby park to admire the noble beauty of the lotus flower. For the rest of the year I dream about its beauty.
|Here I am using a Silver Bristlon flat brush #4 for the transparent underpainting. The drawing has a lot of straight lines, so it helps to use a new brush with nice straight edge. The unnatural green color is viridian.|
|I am in the process of blocking in with opaque paints. The challenge of this painting is differentiating many greens in lotus pads: warm/cool, dark/light, and intense/grayed.|
|Continuing to develop the pads. I also changed the "background" colors.|
