Just loose enough Ingie!
A very nice picture, I like the fact that the flowers are falling.
So many flower paintings look like garden catalogues.

Nice work with the darker band of colour on a light stroke for the petals.
The light really shines through the edges.

Oh my goodness.... that is totally awesome!

I had to really have a good look, those flowers look real and the centres just took my breath way.

Fantastic job!!!

Something here catches my eye with the flower having so much detail from it's inside and as you leave that point things start to blur out until the leaves have no distinct lines for shape and little detail. This is an interesting way of directing the viewers attention to what you are expressing as the most important part of the painting and creating an hierachy of imagery (from most important to least important) in the painting with the less distinct visible features (such as the leaves) having less detail and line definition.
