underwater lily pads and haiku…

This is the third and last in the series of paintings I started during a course last fall with Melanie Matthews and finished recently. Once again I have struggled with taking a reasonable photograph of the piece. This one has a fair amount of texture making it especially difficult. There are also some reflective metallics – so it changes a lot depending on the light and angle.
The under water feeling I was trying to create was wonderfully captured by Tom’s haiku.

Here’s a funĀ  art blog and check out this lovely watercolour with a wonderful piece of fortune cookie advice – and it doesn’t just work for artists!

  1. I really like the perspective and composition and textures in this one! The confusion of shapes manages to be both incoherent and yet concrete and definite at the same time!
