Very nice David. I like how you have thrown the background into soft focus to bring the eye right to the subject of interest. Beautiful light on the petals.

Wow really like the depth of field. I am waiting for a bee to come out at me.
A joy to look at.

Yes, I like the soft focus too - and the detail on the foreground flower/leaf is lovely.:)

I've actualy been thinking about painting a bumble bee into this and having it flying (with blurred wings) and just about to land on the flower.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

The bee gives a better sense of the size of the flower. Great light and lovely muted greens.

That bumblebee is a good addition. We had a huge bee come into the house last night, it was as big as a hummingbird. Never seen anything that size before. Looked just like the one in your painting.

Thanks guys.

Yeah, I think the bee was the missing ingredient that the painting needed to give it a bit of life.

Glad I did it now.

Im glad you added that bee too. I really liked your painting before the bee, but with that bee added it certainly takes your painting to another level...I love it!
