Little Lillie Pads
What makes lillie pads look like lillie pads? Certainly not a lot of excruciatingly painted detail...at least in my books. Just enough of the RIGHT detail gleaned from VERY CAREFUL OBSERVATION to get the visual idea across. I think the act of carefully looking at something is as important as painting it.
