WDE - 081012 - Lone waterlily

Was hoping to get this done and spied this scrape piece of card stock...3x5"
Used the pastel pencil left on the table and it didn't stand out against the deep blue; switched to gouache and it took many layers on the white of the lily, but it was fun to keep it simple (should have left off the dark lines and it would have maybe looked better). This will make a nice gift card, or maybe even a greeting card.

It has an oriental appeal to it. Simple yet strong!

Re: WDE - 081012 - Lone waterlily

Look at the translucency and depth the 'many layers of white' have given !
I like everything about this - it's beautiful.
