Any mist in the dusk.

This is just magical Silvy and as Eighty said gives one such a good feeling. I especially like the flowers in the foreground, they just sing SUMMER :)

Fascinating and orchestral. Feels very theatrical as a moment in musical theater. It feels a little to me like a more modern version of a painting by Gainsborough or Boucher or Fragonard. In the first one I think the sweetness of the blues and veridian put me in mind of that time. But it still has your voice.

This makes me happy dear Silvy. Beautiful!

03-11-2012, 10:52 AM
Silvy, what a beautiful job on both of these, like them a lot:):):):)

As Caesar says:poesia pura....just beautiful, so soft and gentle, almost magic...bravo, Silvy.

Silvy, this is such a magical scene and great mood, I like it a lot! :)
those flowers are awesome!

as you were asking for critique, I just want to note that the white paint strokes underneath the left flower are somehow "disturbing" me .. perhaps make them darker and blend them more with the water? just a suggestion ... :o

Very nice, the daisies are really great :)

Unlike MSIE I don't have much of a problem with those white brush strokes (though I could see how he could) - I do find the tree to the left to be a little perfect though. That might be intentional - like a well maintained topiary, but I find it drawing my eye away from the Daisies with it's perfection.

I agree with you, that white is too heavy.
I wanted to make a reflection in the water but I exaggerated.
I'll make the change.

Many thanks for your suggestions too HarlequiNQB:):):)
Constructive criticism is very important!
Watching carefully at left tree:rolleyes:, you're right!
