"Water Lilies in Blue 2"
This is my 2nd try of the same painting. From the previous one, I have learned that I might have shift the reference photo too far to the blue, so the scene has deviated too far from the reality. With the 2nd attempt, I toned the ref photo a little less to maintain most of green colors, but the painting still has a dominant color tone to unify the color scheme. The trial and error approach gradually trains my sensitivity in establishing my color sense. It is tedious, but necessary.
