:clap: love it! If you don't mind my asking, which gel did you use as I have been wondering about Golden's Extra Heavy Gel for a more impasto look?

The blue between the petals emphasizes and complements the yellow orange and red orange beautifully. Then the transition to orchid recedes the background, yet still suggests light. Fun, bright, effective painting.

Thank you everyone for your comments.
Ann - I used different Golden gels from regular to extra heavy and molding paste for this painting.
