Trying to achieve a tropical feel with the bright flowers set against lush vegetation. Challenging to get the right temperature and shade of pink - ideally I would have liked it to be warmer (and the photo has cooled it down a shade also!)
Looks pretty darned good to me, and for me and most artists, everything we attempt is a challenge. Blessings, Jim
Tipically one might have had the lightest value flower towards the top. However your deeper value and most chromatic flower is pushing the lighter ones back which creates a little visual tension that helps to make these forms exciting.
I LOVE this painting Michelle....one of my favorites so far!!
Thank you all for your thoughtful comments - much appreciated.
Beautiful painting, good use of complementary colors
