Pond Painting Evolves

I started this painting months ago, based on work done a couple of years ago when I spent time at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens and Lilypons.

I'd taken a photo of the scene which, in the way that photos can do, flattened the scene to emphasize the sense of a lush, marshy scene.  My first work on the scene lacked a sense of distance that I've since decided was important to the painting.  I ended up working this week on reenvisioning the work and you can see the earlier, much different version, in the blog post from 6/15 entitled Lotus at Kenilworth Aquatic Garden.
