I do not know to stop or to continue ... This one lost some yellow pigment too... The blue is actually purple. and pink is softer and the green have some yellow . Acrylic on canvas, 20"by 16"

all the action seems locked into the upper violet area, perhaps some blooms in the lower right to make your eye move across the canvas?

Thank you, Jannet for viewing and advise. I thought about it too... I will add some blooms there. I would love for the real colors to show but the camera doesnot do it ...

this work has a dignified feel about it to me.

I agree with jheinrichnet11 about the puple and i do follow it into the water.

not sure it is a bloom you want, could jut be purple in the rock.

I think an object might detract from the overall isness of it.

Thank you, Jerry!I will add same color as rododendron on the right lower corner there...

Hi, I adjusted the overall Hue until the light blue on the side became white - now it shows purple and the blooms are more pink... Is this better ?

Thank you Henrik, it is better!I took the picture outside so it would give more true color but ...:)

I really love this Julia...great colors...even if you say they are off a little...it is dreamy...
i love the closeness and the distance and the reflections.
I agree about the rock color as opposed to adding more flowers...but do not over work it...if you must work it at all...

I kinda reminds me of Maxwell Perish's work....

very different ...great goin'!

would you want to work some of the lightness in the top,
down into the water too?

Thank You Dornberg for the hint,I was thinking that it is kind of off having it so light on the top and heavy colored in the bottom. But I do not always rely on my intuition and definetely do not have enough knowlege in the field.Thank You.
