Finished this one today. Please critique. The background has very pale pink flower pedals and pale green leaves that really are not showing their true color. 11 x 14. Thanks

Jan: your lilies are outstanding and you have portryed the foliage very well.

No critique from me.

Jan, The lilies and leaves are very nice. I particularly like the deep color in the throat of the flowers--it gives them great shape!

Compositionally, even numbers make me a little uncomfortable. IMO, another little bud would make me less edgy--but it's your painting! :D

I wish I could paint leaves as well as you. :)

Thanks to everyone for the great review. It really incourges me to keep pushing on. I do think I am getting the hang of this better.

Lyn, I agree with you that a third pedal would help a lot and I will add #3, you are so right.

Sandy, I just begin mixing colors until I get the shade I like, this is what I think went into the mix.
Permanent Green Light
then added small amounts of:
Sienna
Burnt Umber
Paynes Grey
Pithalo Blue

Thanks again. Jan
