View Full Version : Lily pads on One Mile Lake, painting process

This is the latest watercolor on paper mounted on board I painted, from a picture I took at One Mile Lake near Pemberton (BC, Canada), a magnificent lake with colorful lily pads and pretty boardwalks.

What I like about this painting is that although I used a reference picture, it could also be seen as an abstract pattern.
