Water lilies for Waterlily

 
 
Well when I decided to do flowers on Dior Waterlily, it really was a no brainer – it had of course to be water lilies. I painted them with acrylic colors, and I finished off with a coat of Seche vite. 
I'm not as pleased with them as my first water lilies, see them HERE, and in retrospect I’m annoyed with myself, I should have used pinks for the petals, I think that would have been better…

Ja, da  jeg besluttede at male blomster på Dior Waterlily, lå det jo lige for – det skulle da være åkander. Jeg malede dem med akrylfarve og afsluttede med Seche Vite toplak.
Jeg er ikke så tilfreds med dem som med mine første åkander, se dem HER, og bagefter ærgrer jeg mig over at jeg ikke valgte lyserødt til kronbladene, det ville have været bedre, tror jeg.

    1. Det er vildt mærkeligt, det er åbenbart når jeg kopierer det fra et word doc. (og det ER de rigtige links), at det smutter, nu er det rettet, og tak fordi du gjorde opmærksom på det!!

  6. Nice! Though I think I agree with you--pink petals might have been even better.

  8. Very pretty, and appropriate, considering the polish! I love how you do waterlilies. I do agree that more contrast between petals and background would be even better, though!

  9. Beautiful green and the water lilies are fantastic! I really like the petals the way they are, though, I find the color palette very simple and refreshing!

    1. Thank you, arfbalt, and you are right about simplicity often being more than less, so to speak...

  12. I like these water lilies and I like the other ones too. :-) Maybe here you could have put a little bit more of dark green near to your tips, to make some contrast. The flowers are beautiful, very artistic effect! :-)

    1. Thank you, Raggio di Luna, yes, darker leaves would have helped a lot here :)
