Hello Ginette .. this is nice but (nit pik coming) :D
.. think if you mixed some of the flowers compliments and your flower yellow and made some distant greys and then mixed those greys to variable degrees into the back 3 or 4 flowers you would really give this a lot of depth. It can survive very well as is but the distance might give it a little more zing.

Im going to dissagree with Wayne on this one. I like the contrast as is and don't really see an improvement with adding debth (with distant greys). I hope you take what everyone says to a great degree, but I think you have a small gem here as is.

Great stuff and I love the light brush stroke areas that arent solid in color and kinda leave some underpainting exposed. composition solid and a great work.

have fun,

B

love the contrast and how it pulls in different directions but holds together so well.

Thanks Wayne.... your suggestion is noted :)

I am happy with it as is, so I won't make any changes on it.

Thanks All! I really appreciate everybody's input.

Even if don't make changes, I learn from the suggestions and continue to grow... which is what it's all about. The WC community is fabulous :clap:

Love
Ginette

it. The knife and brush work convey a sense of angst to me. Very deliberate in its approach. Bold piece of work. bobby
