Water Lilies -- Watercolor


This is one I did previously.  The picture I was using for inspiration was from an art book, but the original was done in acrylics. I had to experiment a lot to figure out how to reproduce that picture in watercolor. There are lots of layers of color in the picture to try to reproduce it. Was a lot of fun and learning.
