Hello all,
This is my first time posting here. This is based on a photo of a flower I saw on a trip to Maui. The flower looks like it is glowing in the photo so I was trying to get that feel.

8x10 canvas board
Grumbacher acrylics
Pthalo blue, quid red, cad red, cad yellow, titanium white
C&c welcome

I think you caught the glow very well.

Good form to the flower, nice colour ...... maybe look a little more closely at the junction of flower and stem :)

Welcome to the Forum. Your painting is very nice. Some good advice from Maureen. Also are there any places in your reference where the flower petals are darker in value than what they appear in your painting?

Thank you all for your recommendations. I worked a bit more and tried to push the shadows a bit more as well as correct color and form. I think this is an improvement. http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/09-Jul-2015/1968403-tmp_14164-2015-07-09_00.17.581297822441.jpg
