Weekly review

My review for this week is a botanical: "Hidden Beauty".

Even I am facinated by waterlilly-flowers; while painting this, I actually found the most interesting to depict was the large leaves and the look of what is "under the water". The textures and play of sun and shadow of the leaves was facinating to paint, and going below water great to try too :)

I am very happy with this piece. I did enter it into a couple of shows some years ago, but it wasn't placed in any.

 It took more that 40 hours to complete.

Original 22,4 x 32,8 cm.
