very van gogh
i'm not a fan of van gogh, or mums, particularly, but i'm curious of what type of composition you're thinking for a larger version, and if you plan to work this 'chunky' in the larger version?

of this one i just think the mauve isn't doing anything for ya and would suggesting keeping more with the orange/red theme instead.

I like to paint chunky it's kind of my thing. For the bigger picture I'll be doing a vase with Mums in them.

Yeah I agree the mauve does nothing for it. I do feel it needs a touch of cool color in it thought. I will probably change the mauve today to a blueish tone.
