35. Waterlily #9

I was painting some landscapes today, since early morning. And since they were going along decently, I did not stop them midway to do a flower. However, since the snow paintings were over sooner than I expected, I also managed to squeeze in a lily today. :) And since it started snowing and was very cloudy, I was literally racing against the daylight to complete the painting and take a snapshot. Nothing bugs me more than completing a painting just to realize that it is too dark for a photo!

Due to the forced circumstances, I think I stopped this piece about 15 minutes short. I'd have definitely done something more, just that I cannot figure out what now.:D Let me know what you think!


  1. This is beautiful! I think it looks completed. But u can think of adding lil' disturbance to the reflection of the full bloom lily in the left...just a thought...not to sure myself though

  2. Thank you Prabha. Yeah some indication of ripples in the water, to separate the reflections clearly would be better :) Thank you for the feedback!
