i can't be objective about this background anymore. any suggestions, comments? it's still on the easel. thanks, already! oil, 18x24 on canvas
okay...i'm reposting a hopefully better picture....
okay...new version...what i did is darken the white in the trees (sky) warm up the lightest value in the face, move 1 of the flowers and darken their value and also cool it. i'd have tried to do this differently, bur daddy wanted his beloved mandevilla vine in there. i didn't do the crop, henrik, but i actually moved the flower before i saw your post, so we agree there! thanks all for your input and let me know what you think now...it's still wet!
and again...lighted up milt's hedge
