Beautiful painting of this orchid! Hope you don't mind that I cropped it and enlarged it to further see the quality of your work. Well done!

Lol!! No I don't mind at all. I feel like this one looks better from a distance. Thank you!! :)

You've painted the flowers with great drama and skill. So I ask you to consider lightening and variegating the background, hinting of a garden setting. The near black background is more suggestive of a flash photo or of an attempt to push the contrast way high. It's not needed and I see it as overkill because of the great job you've done with the main subject.

Thank you for the suggestion. I was struggling with the back ground. My mother was visiting and liked it like that so I left it even against my better judgement. Amazing what parental opinions will do!!! I like what you said a lot better.

It runs rings around my flowers Suzy, love the detail and the colour is striking. Well done! Cheers Debs =))
