Wow! Such a lively palette! They look do realistic, I believe I could reach out and touch them.

Very realistic and I really like how you did the water drops on the lily pads!

compliments are well deserved !
on my screen , the flowers and the pads look Very separate ,
and b/c of the heavily saturated green pads ,
the flowers and their petals start to feel flat .
( the strong shadows also add to that )
if you have some deep-dark reds in your collection ,
they might work to ' sculpt ' the petals further .
- burnt orange or burnt sienna are other possibilities .
if that then appears to be too much ,
some daubing with a putty or overpainting can adjust/mingle .
the bold/strong colour you have now is a fine catch to the eye !
