The lotus flower is regarded in many cultures as a symbol of purity, enlightenment, self-regeneration, and rebirth. Its characteristics are a perfect analogy for the human condition: even when its roots are in the dirtiest waters, the lotus plant produces the most beautiful flowers. I created this impressionistic piece using acrylic paints and mixing the right combination of colors to create a sense of calm and peacefulness. I prepared the canvas with a quality white gesso paste and created some texture using a small palette knife. Before doing beginning this impressionist piece, I looked at real landscapes of lotus flowers in India to capture the beauty of lotus fields in the real world. After that, I carefully applied the acrylic colors on the canvas mixing them into different shades using a variety of different palette knives, after which I applied acrylic varnish to protect the piece and give it a glossy elegant look. Palette knives are one of my favorite tools and I use them almost as much as, if not more than, actual paintbrushes. With palette knives, it's possible to create different shapes and textures that are amazingly stimulating to look at but atypical when compared to the standard brush technique. This piece will fit nicely in any home that seeks a sense of calm and tranquility and would also be well-suited for any room at your home also an office, restaurant, café, or spa.
