Lotus Flower at Hudson Gardens

Lotus Flower at Hudson Gardens

I painted this artwork at a plein air in Littleton, Colorado. It was one of those warm early fall days that needed to be captured on canvas. The painting shows the effects of early afternoon light on the water and the pods. I was especially interested to depict reflections of sun on the pads. Later on in the studio, I added the carp fish, changed some lights and reflections, and signed the painting.
