If you haven't seen the floral paintings of Brian Davis, you might want to check them out. Some are breathtaking.

I couldn't resist copying this one while penned up last winter.

His style is much more polished (what an understatement!) , but this is how I saw that composition

Lovely colours - what are you working in and how big is the work?

Love the depth of color you have achieved and your lilies still read white. Lovely.

Bill, i really like the light and shadows on this! even tho your COI is centered it works fine. i'd love to see more detail. can you post a better image? what i'm seeing is very pixalated.

Hi Bill - hope you can upload a less-pixillated ref!
This looks so nice:D
I've tried smoothing things out a bit - don't know if it's any nearer the original though!
Let me know if You'd like me to remove this one I've doctored! :lol:

Yours is better. Let's leave it

I'll need to do another photo. This was taken in pre-tripod days.

This looks really beautiful, I think your photo doesn't do it justice.
