Water Lilies in a Pond

Water Lilies
Watercolors on Arches 300 lb NOT paper
14"x 11"
This is not what I do everyday...painting flowers!But I am doing it right now, round the clock.My sister decided that this year we will be having flowers on her calendar.I am so short of time that I could n't even do some trials to see in what style I am going to paint- we just started off. Now its 'free-style', I guess! I am on my eighth page today.Have to finish all of 12 by Sunday.I will be sharing them all here very soon.
We are not having much sunshine here lately, yesterday was very cloudy and it has been  raining again since last night.This picture was taken under the light of my table lamp.The colors look yellower than they actually are but its the next best thing I can do.

    1. Thank you, Suzanne,you are so kind.I never painted flowers seriously before.In fact I was quite reluctant to do it initially, but now I am glad I gave it a shot.I am sure when I reach 12 the flower, I will stop being afraid of them!
      No Sunshine yet,I am still waiting...Hope you are doing good.Thanks for stopping by.
