Thanks for hosting Helen, this is acrylic on canvas 12 x 18 inches and it took 1 hour 20 minutes. I think I went too dark on the background but it is not too awful, I quite like the echinacea
Thanks for looking
All C and C welcome
wow, beautiful light!!! I like very much the colors and the style!

That's great Christine, I don't think the background's too dark - it brings out the light on the figure.

Nope - backgrounds good - colours are great - as usual.

Great job and no, the background isn't too dark, you have some wonderful colors back there and she pops because of them.

I absolutely agree with Helen, the background is wonderful. It isn't too dark, and all the color really makes it pop. Just love all the color in this.

The background is dark enough to add "pop" to the colors, Christine!
