It's lovely...but I keep wanting to turn it 90 degrees to the right...I think because the bright flowers at the bottom left look like they're growing sideways, and they want to be upright! But you've got some really great values here, and nice work on the flowers...

There's some really nice work in this Ramya.

I took note of Lea's comment and re-orientated it - but it doesn't work because of the light/dark b/g - and everything being pushed to the side.


BUT, I do think those yellow flowers bottom left are too bright and distract the eye. So I've taken the liberty of repeating those flowers on the right to bring the eye back and help balance the composition.
See what you think.:)


They could even go up a bit more into the top right - and perhaps repeat those flowers up and left of the yellow central flower - it will, again, help balance the whole and take the eye round.

Thanks so much for taking the effort Maureen,You are totally right on the yellow flowers being distracting also the space on the right side is free all flowers bring on one side...will redo this again and post.I love pansies

Beautiful painting. I think adding just a few blooms to the spikes you already have there might do it on brightening the lower right side. Or you could put some lavender spikes into that area for color contrast with them. I know you'll do something creative with it.

Your strokes are gorgeous and fascinating. I don't do much in oils but in pastels I've been loosening up so studying the way you handle flowers in oils is helping me. Gorgeous painting.
