acrylic on gessoed card board, 40x30 cm


I like to play with colors mixing them on the board/canvas but very often i stop when it's already overworked

is it dull picture?!

any comment will be appreciated

thanks for looking :wave:

Oddness is striking here, a worn out industrial colors and a flower, I like the non descript background and also the way flower blends with the background but still stands out. I do not think it is dull at all, it is very nice.

This is great, not overworked at all in my opinion. I love the way the flower just stands out all on its own. Very creative choices here and very powerful.....!!!!!

Intriguing painting. It appears as a contrast between a hard industrial background and a soft floral foreground. Very nice.

I really like the painting including your background.

It's wonderful how the softness of the flowers seems to melt into the background!

I like the complexity of colours here. I also like the bold use of line and balance with the flowers. Well done.

That's a super background Dragica - whatever it means (or doesn't mean) to represent! I like the flowers too - a very nice painting.

I think this has a lovely simplicity about it. It has a very harmonious effect on the viewer which I really like. Good work.
