Tropical waterlilies at Kew

I think the top one is almost there, I will leave it on the shelf to tweak. I'm now waiting for the bottom to dry so I can start to work in some more refined details. I spent some time playing with colours and tones yesterday. I want to capture light in the colours, the waterlily house is such a beautifully lit place. I'm trying to achieve the lights without using pure white, so to let the luminousity of the colours give the impression of the light.

Super paintings, the top one is lovely with the water droplets and the water underneath!

Thank you, flowers are a new subject I'm exploring.
