Several visitors commenting on my recent poem mentioned an interest or a delight in lily pools or pads, so I thought I would post one of my watercolours of the said pool.
The moon petals the sea. Rose petals the sea. Stone sea. Stone petals. Rose petals of stone. Stone rising before me. Sea moves. How moves...

Oh Dave, from where do you get such amazing talents? You're a water colour artist as well.
I love them both, good work. I like the light on the water a lot. I like that you can dream when looking at it.
The light-hearted doodle is great. It tickles my fantasy. It's like looking from behins glass, a window.
Have a nice weekend!
A watery world of nightmare you've painted there! I wouldn't want to go for a paddle...
I could never cope with watercolours. When I painted I literally coloured-in a drawing in blocks of oil. I've watched watercolourists at work and I stand in awe. It's the randomness of it all. When I painted what I saw in my head was what ended up on the page. I measured it. I used compasses and set squares. I'm the same with cooking. I treat it like a formula. I have no concept of a 'dash' of something.
I take my hat off to you, sir.
Utterly delightful, Dave.
Wow, these are good. I like the purples which add a rich and mysterious texture.
"..one of my watercolours." One! It would take me a lifetime and two more to come up with anything remotely that exquisite.
Great looking stuff Dave. Post more of your painting!
Beautiful images--I agree with Carl--would be interested in seeing more painting, tho I know rendering it to pixels must take away some vibrancy.
Love the colours in both, Dave, but especially the deep blues in/on the head of the cephalopod thingy!
I wish ... I wish ... I lived on your side of the pond for just long enough to come purchase one of your creations ~~ of course you would have a gallery and tons of followers.
boy oh boy dave the creative energy just flows through you!! nice work. steven
Beautiful stuff Dave, love them :) :)
My vision is not great- my computer screen worse- in the first I saw the Lady of Shallot and in the second I saw creatures from outer space...and toes...love your colour pallet , really nice!
Dave these are delightful, I was never very good with water-colours my hand is perhaps a tad too heavy so I have great admiration for anyone who can master this delicate art
Very lovely watercolours Dave, How clever you are!
They are stunning and the bottom one is a good kind of creepy. I like the colors you chose a lot.
your doodles are in water colour?
Is there no end to your ability to amaze this poor mortal?
Well done Dave, wonderful images!
Love paintings. You are such a talented chap.
Too kind, but much thanks.
Welcome and many thanks for visiting and commenting.
I do think that light is a big pasrt of the human fascination with water. The two elements interact splendidly.
I always feel I could lose myself in any open water. Of course, if push came to shove...
You are right, of course, watercolour is in many ways the most difficult medium. I had never used it seriously, preferring to be able to work back over work provisionally laid-in, which can't be done with watercolours, not to any great extent, as it goes muddy. When I retired I decided to take up watercolors for that very reason. Partly a challenge, I suppose, but mostly for a new experience.
Thanks for that. Much appreciated.
Welcome. Thanks for the visit and the comments. The feedback is always useful.
It probably wouldn't, you know! Thanks, though.
Yup, I may just do that. Thanks.
Yes, the change to pixels does change things - but sometimes it flatters!
Ah, that's an example where the change did not flatter (see reply to John, above).
Now it's me to say I wish...
Again, I have to say: I wish... but thanks.
Welcome indeed and many thanks, both for the visit and the comment.
That's a lovely commen t. Thanks greatly. Creatures from outer space is not wildly off target. The Lady of Shallot inspires...
I do sympathise. Since retiring I have developed a pronouced tremor in the arms, which makes life difficult, painting-wise.
Thanks for the comment - very much appreciated.
No, actually, an example of mixed methods: watercolour and digital doodling. (Well, it was bound to happen, wasn 't it?)
Thanks. Much appreciated.

Many thanks for that.
Wow. These are beautiful, Dave. Good job! You are very talented...:)
Thanks for those kind words. Much appreciated.
Ah, such talent you have! Wonderful!!
