Water Lilies

I love water lilies. True, they are not very original, nor can I paint them well, but here I am trying to paint water lilies for the fourth time. I think I made a thousand photos of water lilies in Bali, so I am well stocked with reference material for 2017. Oil on canvas, 30cm x 40cm.



I have two sisters. This is a portrait of the youngest one from a series of photos I made earlier. It is probably the largest canvas area I ever tried to paint on, so this was very challenging. I could not get the likeness right for ages. It is still not quite there, but she is recognisable.

Oil on paper, 42cm x 29cm (16.5″ x 11.4″).
