Ladies in Waiting 2, water lilies

"Ladies in Waiting 2"
5 x 7 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
SOLD
I really liked "Ladies in Waiting," from a few days ago, so I wanted to try it again in a palette knife painting. I pushed the dark and light values for stronger contrast, but mostly enjoyed painting the lily pads! I did this painting alla prima (all at once), which makes it have a nice thick texture and interesting mixtures of colors. The palette knife creates a challenge for me when applied wet over wet, but that forces the paint to interact.

Thanks for looking!
