I have been working on this for weeks and I think I am finally done. I am really pleased with the way this turned out. But if you see anything that could use tweaking please feel free to let me know.
Thanks for having a peek

Lovely Tammy. I enjoyed the light and colour in your lilies on a grey old day here in Hamburg.

If this were mine, I might darken the top two leaves to add a feeling of depth and keep the viewer's eye on the flowers, but this is gorgeous as is! The flowers are exceptionally well done.

I absolutley LOVE this. I think you've done a fabulous job. I would leave it as is! Darkening the top leaves my rin the wonderful feeling of early morning/sunset light.

Thank you all for stopping by and wonderful comments. :)
Angela - i knew there was something i just couldnt see it .. the camera doesnt really pick up that the top part of this piece is alot cooler then the bottom but you are right the top lilly pads have too much red in them and are to bright, even though this is kinda an arial view they are still sitting a little ways back in the distance. THANK you for pointing that out .. off to tweek. :)

Those colors are heavenly. How did you achieve that warmth?

Thanks for stopping by artchrispy and Mtillie.
art- i am just getting back into acrylics after taking a few years to try my hand at watercolors. the warmth was created using layers of color/glazing and really paying attention to the shadows. They really made the piece. I am just learning or attemping to learn color theory and have been focusing on that during my last few pieces.
Happy painting
