I like some of the repeated marks and colors in this, kinda has a stereo effect.
Very cool! :thumbsup:

creation and destruction of depth is a major source of interest here. I do enjoy the bluring of the wonderful colors into each other.

I do enjoy the patterns you create, although to me, they do not interact with each other but seem to exist within their own plane of existence.

does this work better? It's the final "fix"

I thought the first version was lovely, but it pales in comparison to the second! Beautiful colours and textures.

thank you Sarah. I just felt the need for more cohesiveness to it.

Greggo is right, it does have a Parisien feel to it. The second version is much more cohsive but seems darker, although that might just be the lighting.

Big improvement.

the pattern connection I felt was missing is now there. I think this is partly because the black seals both have that red wound on their side. In this scan, the ground seems to have a slight yellow glaze, which works nicely. Also, I think that in terms of color saturation, this is now more balanced.

No, I did darken some areas to give more push pull and it was too evenly balanced (red/blue) so one had to have dominance, so I pushed the blue a bit and cut down on some of the foreground reds. the first "fix" (not shown here) was to pull some of that red across. Then it was too much so I knocked that down
