Hello everyone! I am working on some new paper (to me) Daler Rowney, 9 x 12. All pastels Not sure if this one is completely finished. Help me out!http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/15-Jul-2009/166591-IMG_0554.JPG

Love the color and contrast here, Deb, but for me the top right hand flower looks perched on the petal of the nearer, big one. I think if you were to soften and 'lose' all the smaller ones (try 'tapping' them, not smudging or blending, just pat-pat-pat), and simply let the big one shine, you'd have a stronger statement. It has some very pleasing rhythms in the spacing of the petals. A very sunny piece. :D

Thanks Donna, Deborah, and Paula!

Deborah, after looking at it again, you are right that right smaller flower is suppose to be behind the big front one, so I will try and fix that.

The pinks and reds contrast nicely with the greens and blues. It's always fun learning how to use new paper. You did a good job on this.
