Beautiful Karen. The hot press paper really worked well.

Re: April 2019 Watercolor Challenge - Water Lilies

I started these waterlilies back in April, went on holiday, abandoned for months and finally came back to it!

Arches hot pressed, 140lb 8x11in.

I really struggled to get that backlit "glow" in the lilies. When I recommenced this I darkened the background water which has helped with the contrast. Looking at some of the other attempts (Lengert's in particular) I'm thinking leaving more highlights in the water would help!
