Party Pods

15x22 watercolor on 140 lb cold press paper of lotus flower and seed pods having a party.  I started this a couple of years ago and it never really clicked, so this week it got a makeover, a redo.  Values were reestablished within lotus pads or lily pads, central white flower shading emphasized along with all shadows, and colors were enhanced with new hues on the market.  The central seed pod was lifted out and repainted.  I added additional tall slender grasses behind and left overall pale yellow background tint alone.
