This is my first try on water lily. I based this on a photo I took in the summer of 2007 when we were walking in the 'Haagse Bos' in The Hague. There I saw a small lake covered with water lilies and other water plants. There are hard edges in this piece particularly in the background, and I'm thinking to let them just like that. The shadows are not very visible in the flower, I think I will make them darker.
