Some dear friends gave us this amaryllis for Christmas. We enjoyed watching it grow and bloom during the winter. I painted this from my photos.

Title: "Allure"
Medium: You know it-acrylic
Size: 7 1/2" X 21"

Your honest (yes, even brutal) critiques are always welcomed!

Steven - I love this. The warm palette and the verticle format work so well for this. I adore your background choice. It really sets it off!

wonderful comp, format, palette and loose brush-strokes!
Reminds me of the red amaryllis that my husband and I were given as a gift for our 40th (ruby) wedding anniversary in December (which is the middle of summer here).

Very,very nice! As Lulu said...the crop is perfect and your choice of palette is perfect for this type of flower! No crits at all...sorry:)

No critiques here, as some on that is just learning to paint flowers, I can appreciate the grace that you painted these with.
