Hello all :wave:

This is my latest effort, Friend of mine took a picture of some glads in her garden. When I saw the photo.... had to paint it.
11"X14"

Do you like it? C&C's always welcome

Oh Good Grief, your Glads are absolutely stunning, and they are in my very favourite colour. I don't think they can be beaten in this colour. This is truly magnificent in every way Audrey. :clap: :clap: :thumbsup:

The rendering is nice and the composition. Perhaps the piece is a bit washed out. Maybe try lightening with a mixture of yellow and white instead of just white.

Both yellow and white was used in the final glazes....the colour is alot more intense in reality than the photo and uploading onto the site permits.....

Thank you, For the comments guys and for taking a look.....
