Hi Everyone!
This is a commission from a friend who liked the one piece of wheat that found a place in her garden last summer. She gave me a few refs, there were a lot of shadows and she wanted them lightened up a bit. I choose a ref that showed the underflower of one. Not sure tho...
Would sure appreciate any comments. I will probably take it to her tomorrow to see then finsih up any tweaks and finish coat so she can have it by the weekend. Thanks!!

I agree with Tonyjazz. You have used the reference pic to create something more appealing and emotionally warm. Good job!! (And a great example of a good way to utilize reference pictures.)
