Bird of Paradise (x-posted from Pastels)

Tried for some drama with this. 11" x 13.5" in soft pastels. Background is much smoother (looks "splotchy" here) & colors richer overall than shows up on screen, but hope you like it. Plan to "tweak" the tip on left hand side. Thinking of calling it "Flaming Paradise" but I'm open to suggestions ... any ideas??
Thanks for looking.

This is beautiful, Judy, and one of my favorite flowers. I've always thought of painting one, but hesitate in fear not being able to do it justice. Yours is so well done, it's either going to inspire me or discourage me. I love the very strong highlights around the edges. Makes the whole thing pop against the dark background. Great job!

You certainly created drama Judy - it's really lovely.
Reminds me of an elegant lady's hand - with a little imagination, of course!
Cheers, Maureen

Beautifully done. I love the dramatic back light.
