I drew a lotus flower a while ago. When you think of a pond, the painter that comes to mind is Claude Monet.
Since 1908, Monet has been concentrating on only drawing water lilies, and in all he has painted over 300 works, 40 of which are masterpieces.
By 'Claude Monet Life and Art', he said like this:
" It took me a while to understand my practice. I planted them for joy. I raised them without thinking of drawing them. The landscape will never permeate its existence.”
To that extent, Monet left many lotus series, focusing on the beauty of ponds and lotus flowers growing in ponds.
When you look at his lotus paintings, you realize the still beauty of the pond.
When you look at the lotus, which is quietly blooming in a clean and shiny state, in the pond, you can understand why so many artists have painted with the theme of the lotus flower. I have also painted lotus flowers and ponds in various ways.
Below is a picture drawn using acrylic and coffee powder.
And, as shown below, I drew a thorn lotus using watercolor paints.
A pond painted with acrylic paints gives it a wild, lively feel.
The pond below is a sold painting. It was also sold online.
