Water Color Lotus. Dimension 53cm x 78cm. Signed and unframed.
I always wanted to paint a close up on flower. Doing close up is different from doing from a distance, it required a lot more details in your work though you can choose not to do that. The danger of doing more details is that you may be lost in your work especially on the perspective and the colors application. The painting may end up in the mess or the object may appear to be too flat. This painting took me much more time to complete because of the added details. However, I only added the details in the flower and not so much on the lotus leaf. It is not that I am lazy to do the leaf but because I wanted a contrast between the leaf and the flower. If everything in the painting is added with such details than the painting will not be so interesting.
You may wonder why there were water droplets on the flower and not a single drop on the leaf, it is because the water droplets were sprayed on by my photography friend. Though the night before it was raining but there were just a few dew drops on the flower when we were there at around 6am, my friend weren’t too happy about that and decided to help out for his photography shots.
Recently I bought some master artist water colors made by Korea, it was not cheap even after some big discount. However, I simply love the colors, they were so rich, lively and brilliant as you can see from this painting.
