Work in Progress White Water Lilies Painting + Face 14 for 29 Faces...



Here is a work in progress view of my 18"x24" white water lilies painting.  I've painted some more petals on the bottom flower and put additional layers on the ones that were done before.  I think I should be done with the bottom water lily the next time I work on the painting, except for touch ups, but it's hard to say.  Once I've gone further with the top waterlily, I may need to adjust both waterlilies.

I did the sketch for these water lilies quite some time ago when I was sketching potential lilies for my big eye garden guardian "Waterlily Enchantment."  Alex said these wouldn't work well as her flower, but I loved them so much, I decided to paint them on their own canvas.


This is face 14 for the 29 faces September challenge.  She is a big eye fairy angel or possibly mermaid sketch.  For 29 Faces, the challenge is to share 29 faces during the given month.
