Lily Pad Painting


Hi Matt, this is Caitlin.

I’m still traveling, this painting is inspired by one of the greenhouses in Kew Gardens near London. I really only liked a few of the elements in the photo though; the Lily pads and the monstera leaves. So I used that as inspiration but made up the rest. I did a blue cloudy sky instead of the greenhouse roof, and also made the reflection in the water lighter to reflect that brighter sky. I changed the ramp to a big fallen tree. I moved the monstera plant more to the left, I thought it being right in the middle was a bit awkward. And I changed the dimensions and scale.

Any comments welcome.

What do you think of my value structure?

Thank you
