Colorful oil paintings capture the beauty of lily ponds
If you stop long enough to really observe nature, you’ll begin to notice how the bodies of water, land, and foliage interact together to present a greater variety of hues than you might have imagined. Donna Young’s colorful oil paintings capture the vibrancy of lily ponds, with mesmerizing ripples and sparkling reflections.
“When I put the brush on the canvas, I always start anticipating a certain end result, but the result is usually far from what I had planned to achieve,” reveals Young. “For me, it’s not a failure, but rather letting the process reveal my inspiration.” The talented artist describes her paintings as “reflections of [her] soul” – each gorgeous canvas is vibrant, yet peaceful. “For me, my pieces have a melody that sings in a range of colors with a spiritual touch,” says Young. “I believe in letting my work guide me and accept the composition and colors it requires to create a lasting piece of visual poetry.”
Young’s expressive brushstrokes perfectly capture the way the sky, water, and surrounding vegetation combine to create his tranquil scenes. Reminiscent of Claude Monet water liliesthe layers of oil paint are beautifully blended to depict how the light dances across the rippling surface of the water, while the flowers, leaves and reeds of the pond float quietly above.
