The first coat of color is a splotch dark blue. I would have stopped with this layer but I had less paint in this color than I thought and it was old and the texture wasn't what it should have been. (2/12/14)
For the second coat of paint I mixed phthlalo blue and gel medium to get a smoother, waterier looking finish (2/15/14)
Shapes were cut from some collaged papers I had made up earlier to create the basic design.
The green paper has inclusions of Queen Anne's Lace, so I incorporated those in the lily pads. (2/17/14)
