12x16, oils

a still from a video i watched a while ago about how quickly bacteria develops immunity to antibiotics and takes over the petri dish.
i added some color and skipped some details and now need to decide which ways up.

c&c&votes welcomed

thanks

Really cool. Love the pastel notes of pinks and blues and yellow against the greys. I vote for the second orientation with the pink at lower left , perhaps with some dark tones added upper right for balance.

Lovely composition, La, with such unusual subject matter for influence. As a person who majored in microbiology petri dishes contain lots of stuff!

thanks chaya, i like the minimalism of it too, but kay planted a seed for more, will have to do a busier version, a companion piece of sorts. *rubs hands together* ;)

I can see a whole series based on this - I like the palette and both orientations
