These vibrant purple water lilies are painted on a wet canvas. The artist has prepared a watery background by blending acrylic colors in rapid, yet systematic brush strokes with a flat brush. Using a spray gun, she sprayed more water and allowed it to drip down gently creating the hazy and misty water effect. She then painted the purple lilies with easy upward brush strokes using tint and shade technique. This painting is inspired by the Egyptian art work of water lilies symbolizing victory of the spirit over the senses.
