Petite Peinture: Nymphaea in Pink

"Nymphaea in Pink"

4" x 4" x 1-3/8" Acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas

To help me explore composition and color ideas, I like to do smaller versions of bigger paintings. The 4x4 format is great for this. I am working on a series of water lily paintings for my upcoming show, "Where We Live," and wanted to do some "exploring" with the "portrait" of a water lily. I also wanted to experiment with color and capture the sunlit glow of the flower while keeping the background minimal.
