Beautiful light and delicate feel to your piece, very nice touch of a single green leaf. Nice work.

Dee, sorry I overlooked this. Would there be a way you can etch out more detail in the petals? Without that, it's a very nice painting. With more detail it would REALLY pop!

Thanks! I knew it needed "something"

Dee, if you really wanted to take this painting to the next level, in addition to adding detail to the main flowers, you could etch out some details in those flowers running up the shoots. I think you can use toothpicks or needles to scrape out layers, or to pick from the OP sticks themselves to paint with. The rest I'd leave alone, but that's just me.

Defining the edges and adding more shading has really made a difference. Great work.
