Waterlily abstraction 7


SOLD

This is a new version of a painting that was lost on it's way to Canada last year. It rarely happens, but it is frustrating when it does. I did two versions, this is the first one. I liked this one a lot and it has the original painting's spirit, but I noticed that I had less visible water than the original. I think the reason for it is that the proportions on the new one is different than the original (original was painted on paper). I will show the 2nd one later.

  1. Bonjour Roger,

    Une très belle interprétation... J'aime la profondeur de cette peinture et les multitudes de nuances de couleurs... J'aimerais subitement me transformer en petite reinette afin de faire une douce sieste sur l'une de ces feuilles de nénuphars.
    Votre fleur est exquise...

    gros bisous.

    1. Thanks Mystelio, Glad you like it. I considered posting both, but I thought that they looked too similar and decided to post only the one that got put on auction. The other one is slightly larger and will be posted in a week or so.

    1. Thank you Amanda. Glad you like it. The other version is similar, just changed the composition a little and there is more water. I will post it soon.

  6. I love the colors in this--and it is rare. I don't recall ever seeing a horizon line in these paintings. I like the depth it creates.

    Thanks for the scolding. For someone so sure of herself on so many things, I am far from confident with portraits. Better get to painting more of them.

    1. Thanks Hilje. I am still adjusting and looking for how I want to express Waterlilies today, after all my style and skill has changed over the last two years.
