20 Paintings in 5 Days - Painting Eight

Last piece of the day. We returned to the lavender farm and the lily pond. Always have loved lily pads and the designs they make. This is an example of the great design you can achieve. And no those are not fish. They are flat leaves floating on the surface of the water. I was more drawn to them and the energy they brought to the composition than the lily pads. So I minimized the detail and just worked with the water color to form shapes and emphasize the leaves.
This plein air piece is 9x12" on LaCarte

Amazing art. The 20 in 5 are great, breathing, live and so talented. Waiting for more!
