"Cherry blossoms"

One of my newest paintings done in Acrylic, on 8" x 10" acrylic paper. I love doing flowers!

Welcome to WetCanvas! These blooms are very well done and say "Spring" in a loud voice. Quite lovely! Let's see more of your work.

Very beautiful! I feel as though I could reach out and touch them!

Wonderful colors and composition. I realize you're working with acrylic but it might be helpful to see some edge variation in there too. Softening the back blossoms and stem edges would really make your focal flower sing.

Re: "Cherry blossoms"

The flowers are quite lovely! I could wish for a more subdued background, to really make the flowers sing.

Re: "Cherry blossoms"

Very pretty flowers - perhaps the blue of the B/g is a little strong (IMHO), but it's your choice - your painting!
