Here is the first smaller Water Lily painting I did a few days ago. Tried to keep it light, sharp and fun. Painting for me now is more of a journey. Keeping it rough with bold brush strokes and being spontaneous means that the road is partly unknown. A decision can take a painting in a totally new direction. A year ago I planned everything ahead and the paintings had a calm feeling. I paint so differently today (both good and bad I think).
