I'm back again. Whoever said I would get addicted to acrylics is right!! :D

This is a piece that I did for the WDE today.


5 x 7" on canvas board. Daler-Rowney acrylics.

I certainly found this piece easier to work on than the lilies. Hopefully I'll get the hang of these things with a bit more practice.

C/C is always appreciated! I'll take any help I can get! :D

Keep in mind that I'm just an amateur, and it may be the photo... is the light source consistent? Maybe I'm just cross-eyed LOL!

Other than that, thye're beautiful! White is so hard to do!!!

Hi Ann-Yes,

Thanks for the observation. I made a greyscale of the photo and a greyscale of the painting and I suppose I could darken the left side of the large flower a bit more. There are some subtle shadings in some areas that aren't getting picked up by the camera either. Are there any other areas that you see that might need adjusting?

Thanks for your input.:)

No, it's perfect! I'm sure the problem is the poor resolutions of computer monitors. Gorgeous!

This is lovely. I think the background really compliments the flowers very well. Well done.
