I worked on this painting a few days ago, refining shapes, values and colour. The big change from day 2 to day 3 is in the elimination of the 'vein lines' on the lily pads. They were too graphic and incompatible with the painterly, loose interpretation I wanted. I also added more colour to the large lily flower and stem, as well as in the water. At the end of the day I felt that the painting was coming together well, so it was a good time to stop. My next steps will be to continue refining colour and value. I think the finish is in sight!
