I know, I know...the petal on the right is wonky BUT it doesn't really matter that much as the whole flower is kinda not right!!! :lol: :lol:
There are things I like and things I don't.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
11x17 on arches using davinci paints and ink detail at the end.

Interesting design and pretty rendition. I'd like the palest blush of peach here and there to lessen the coolness, but it is cool. I like it.

I think it's wonderful!! There are so many ways to handle a flower 'portrait', and I think this one is just great!! Very strong and graphic. Wonderful!

I think the ink gives terrific texture and movement. It's something different, so that is a good thing for sure :)

To me it looks wonderful. I like the blues and this is a very interesting way to handle florals.

Well I wouldn't have said it was wonky - looks ok to me - in fact scrub that last comment - it looks fantastic - love the addition of the ink.

I definately like the colors. Not too cool IMHP, but I am partial to blue and yellow. Like how it fills the page to the edges -- brings it right up close. The ink really adds to the visual impact, making the petals stand out.

Valri, I think it's LOVELY!! But then I always am drawn to ink and watercolor paintings. It doesn't look wonky at all to me. VERY NICE!

WONKY MAG! ya that's what I'll call it!
Thanks for all the kind words.
It is a different place over here as opposed to the gallery, eh? Not that the gallery wasn't a great place and still is but over here it is a slower pace and everyone gets their day in the SUN!

:wave: Hi! Valri, This is interesting for it's posterized look, it has great depth from across the room and I can picture it adorning a sunroom wall. Regards, marianne

Very dramatic, Valri! It's a great composition and the ink really adds to it. Nice work!!

I forgot to mention that I'm submitting this for a poster comp for an art fair that I'm in this summer. The prize is a free booth and the rights to sell off prints of the original. Fingers crossed. I submit it tomorrow.

I think this painting is absolutely beautiful.
It is different enough to really make a statement!
Good luck with the competition!!!!!!!!!!!1
