Hi Clem,.... nice composition and nice complimentary colors..... maybe a little more reflection in the copper (I think it's copper) would give it more life.... if it is copper the white flower would reflect on the pot as would the surface of what ever it is sitting on. If I'm way "off base" on thinking it's copper, I apologise...... Donna

Even if the pot were glazed ceramic you would have some reflection. In this insdtance it would be very good to have the white reflected slightly, the pot needs a little spark of something and it would also tie the two objects together. These are so nice. I would like to see your exhibit!

Hi clem, My eyes can't quite decide whether to focus on the huge white flower or the ceramic pot. Eachtime I concentrate on the flower, the big pot is pulling my eyes to it and when focusing on the pot, a big blob of white on the right distracts me from doing it. I end up admiring the twig with buds on the foreground and surprisingly both the pot and flower seems to disappear. If this was your intention then the piece is exceptional. Now, try visualizing the flower closer to center frame, overlaping a small section of the pot, then the eyes would know where to focus. (it becomes cliche, though) The colors are superb, a masterly and mature choice. cheers !!!
