water lilies 72


water lilies 72

The theme for August for Kate's alumni group is water, so when the temperatures reached over 100F yesterday, I opted to stay indoors and sketch from a photograph with the air conditioning on HIGH!

This sketch gave me a fit; probably because it had been a frustrating day at work and that lack of ease tended to show in my sketching. After my third attempt I was fairly happy with the lily itself and some of the lilypads -- but the shadows -- SIGH!

We all have days like this Lin. I love these waterlilies! The left one is particularly good. You really captured its graceful shape beautifully.

I think your water lillie are great, you captured the lily wonderfully. Shadows give me fits too, especially when I am tired!

I love the left lilly. (how's that for aliteration? It's so upright and bright and sprightly.
