A Dragonfly on waterlilies with three pink and white blooms
Waterlily Dragonfly: Sold

30 x 30 cms Framed oil painting on cotton canvas panel
Painted by applying thick impasto oil paint using a painting knife

Inspiration: The beautiful waterlilies are from the Italian Garden in Compton Acres, Dorset. I chanced upon the stunning dragonfly during a family trip to Kew Gardens. It was in one of the Waterlily glass houses and was the perfect subject to place amongst the waterlilies in my painting.
