Carrie Blake Lily Pond in Sequim

First the wet in wet washes.

Then reserving the shapes of the lily pads with resist.

Next, wet in wet for the reflected trees and submerged lilies. 

Darkening some areas.

More leaf details and brighter reds.

Removed the resist and laid in the party colors of the sun struck lilies wet in wet.

Beginning to add pastel details using Nupastels.

Here's the final painting....I am considering redoing it as a dyptich or triptich - what do you think?
