Watercolor Demonstration 3
'Lily Pond'

This painting was completed using a 24-pan set of Schmincke Horadam watercolors.
Note: This demo appeared in the August 2006 issue of Curry's ArtWise.

Initial Drawing   Initial Drawing
My friend Victoria has a beautiful lily pond outside her home in North Carolina. This drawing of it was done with a 6B Mars Lumograph pencil.
     
May Green   May Green
The dominant visual in the pond is the collection of lily pads so I started there, using May Green mixed with a dab of Cadmium Yellow Light.
     
New Colors   New Colors
Next I added various new colors from the palette, including Indigo and Venetian Red; plus a thin layer of Prussian Blue on the lily pads.
     
Background   Background
The water was painted with a mixture of Sepia and Ultramarine Finest. It was essentially the look I was going for, but not quite dark enough.
     
More Blue   More Blue
I tried to build up density within the scene by adding more blue to the water, mostly Ultramarine Finest and Prussian Blue.
     
Warm Colors   Warm Colors
And then some warmer tones added here and there to help suggest detail, primarily Naples Yellow and Burnt Sienna - plus another dash of Venetian Red.
