Thought I’d try a more subdued palette for these water lilies. These plants were part of an indoor Japanese garden at the Indiana State Fair last year. Further proof that I can find just about any subject at the fair.
Speaking of my state fair, it opens next week. I keep a running list of subjects I still need to photograph and paint for my book. Number one on my list this year is Dachshund racing! I crave doing a painting of them. Dock diving dogs are another one I’d love to paint. I’m imagining a painting of a flying dog in mid-air, nothing but sky behind him. Hope I can position myself so I can shoot some good references.

Back to the lilies, here are a few images captured along the way:
