MY COMMENTS:
There is something very intriguing about a Banana Bloom - such large flower and stunning colors! Growing up we had a banana tree in our backyard. Not only did I enjoy looking at the blossom, but the banana blossom curry is a delicacy that we enjoyed occasionally.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I think this painting has been really good for me. However, I would like to know what would make it even better. Anything with light? composition? color? anything else?

I like it too. In my opinion more contrast would make it even better. This could make the bananas more recognisable and would bring the painting more focus.

Thanks Coen1 for your comments. Do you mean I should make the bananas darker?

Not darker preranap, but by adding shadows the shape will be better recognised, I think.
