Day 5 - Little Beauty

Here's water lily number two, such a little beauty don't you think?  I loved the composition of this photo and the shadow underneath the petal on the left. Oh, and I just realized that you can't see the reference photos unless you register at Paint My Photo (free).  So I'll include a small pic if you're interested.  I don't usually paint from photos, but I am having a surprisingly good time.  Mental note to not stray too far too long . . .   Having to compose a still life (even if it's only one object) takes me more time than it should so I think I'm getting rather spoiled.
