very nice .. wish the background were pushed back a touch but that is only artistic choice and not necessarely important. Great smooth coloring.

i really like your style. i agree with wayne about the background, but is fabulous as is too! the color scheme is really good...the play between warm and cool colors. great stuff.

Beautiful flow of palette and subject entwined one with the other's surroundings. Earth and air and water and people...

Thanks for looking, everyone.
Wayne, I'm not sure what you mean by "pushing back" the background.

I mean making it receed into the distance instead of pushing to the forefront.
Example: If you mute your colors they lose value and intesity and naturally will recede when beside the full colors. Put a piece of see through plastic over your painting and then mix up your background colors of orange and purple. Then add some of the purple to the orange and some of the orange to the purple. Then add some white to each to further drop the value. If you apply those colors to the plactic over your backgroud (your new orange over your old orange and your new purple over the old), you should see your figures pop forward and stand out instead of sinking into the background colors.

Thanks Wayne. Yes, I have kept the colours here a bit flat. So the figures merge a bit too well with the background.
Will keep your point in mind.

I would go for the center figure having drapery that touched or went past the bottom of frame at lest partly and off centeredly.
