But three's not a crowd!

Hello everyone. Today's effort. My first successful pallette knife painting. C & C welcome. The title is kind of a joke as a follow-up to my previous painting called "Two is company"

Some close-up of the textures.

Re: But three's not a crowd!

This is gorgeous. I love the black & white almost 'checkerboard' background. Unexpected and inspired, allowing the orange/ blue colours of the foreground to really pop out. I should think you are quite pleased with this.

Re: But three's not a crowd!

Thank you Colin and Gayle. So happy you liked it . Appreciate your comments. I felt the left part of the painting is little empty, so I thought of painting it solid black. I did this on my computer. Before I put it on canvas, would like to get your opinion if this is better?

Re: But three's not a crowd!

I suppose you could but I'm afraid it would put too much weight on that side - For me personally, I think it's fine as it is!! The textures you've created are so interesting that I don't believe that side is bland at all. In some cases subtle is the perfect option.

Re: But three's not a crowd!

For me, leave it as it is! The balance is good and the flowers do take the eye into the left anyway.

I really like this one.

Re: But three's not a crowd!

Bhavani I agree with gaykir and Charlie's Mum. The original painting has an interesting composition structure that really works even if it breaks some of the 'rules'. As Charlie's Mum said I think the eye is drawn left in any event by the interesting texture of the area.

Re: But three's not a crowd!

This is really nice Bhavani. I love the textures you have achieved and the colours are great. The checker board design is most effective. I am with all the others that you leave it just the way it is. Well done.

That texture is great. It certainly adds another dimension.
