Water Lily 2

After posting last evening I spent more hours on this painting. Here's where I left off late last night. These are scans. I like how the glare is reduced and the Prussian Blue gets to show off its rich beauty.

And here's today's work. More layers of chromium oxide, followed by glazes of yellow ochre. I think I need to turn to the flower next, establishing back petals. After that, it's a matter of working around the painting, giving attention to all areas. That's something Koo taught me, to build up all aspects a bit at a time.
