Water Lilies-Stage Three

This is getting pretty close to finished.  There is an area that I'm not quite sure I like so will wait for a few hours to decide if more needs to be done in that one area.

You're are going pretty fast with this one Ann and it's looking really good! Those 3 underpainted colors does add a continuity to the colors in the upper area, it's really an interesting look in my opinion

Those underlying colors were based on the photo taken by Lil. I thought they looked pretty interesting and a bit unusual too. Not sure how much further this painting will go. Need a "scratch head" icon ha ha, as I review and decide the next steps, if any.

Looks done to me, Ann. Beautiful work :) I think you could have carried that arching undercolor up - it looks like you did because of the reddish color at the upper left. I don't think you have to do a backwards S but any of the shapes to lead your eye in. Good stuff. I still haven't gotten involved in Painting Friends - doesn't seem to be enough time right now. But soon!

Wow, Ann, this is gorgeous. I love it. Well done.

Looks good, great depth with the indication of more lily pads in the background. It might be good to break the horizontal line created by the 3 lilies and pads going almost straight across about 1/3 down, perhaps add just a suggestion of something to kind of break that line? Will look forward to seeing the area you are unsure of and how you correct it!
