I love the brilliant colors, Tracey! If it were me I'd darken the darker lily petals even more.

Thank you Jon and Piper!! Sometimes I have trouble with darkening yellow. I know you're supposed to use the compliment, but then it starts to look dead.
I am open to suggestions!!
Thanks!!

Love its quirkiness Tracey ......... agree about the darks in the flowers - similarto the inside of the cup eh? ... you managed it there!
But warmth in those shadows would help keep the glow. :D

It is so true. He has such long fur at the back that it gets caught and then he sits down and completely embeds it into the fur. I got sick of trying to get it out and washing his little bottom. He didn't like the process either...and the smell (well I am sure you can imagine). I now have it somewhat under control by trimming the butt fur, but I do have a packet of wipes available just in case.
