Water Lily, Lake of the Woods Park, Mahomet, IL (2009), 16 x 20"

Though I am pleased with the finished painting, I struggled with the textures in this one. The problem is that lily pads are flat! I brought out what little variations in color and texture they had, and I think the result is convincing. The water in the photo was also mirror still, so I added a wave-like texture. This helps with the perception of the reflections (under the petals on the lily especially).
