    Transparent Orhids. Which one should it be?

    Here are two versions of "Transparent Orchids". Don't know which one I like better. Opinions anyone? Thanks in advance! Linda

    I like both Lindae, but I think both backgrounds are too fussy and "strong" and are distracting from your painting of the lilies themselves.

    I have put a plain background (sorry for the very rough selection) and also chosen a complementary colour and you'll see how it intensifies the colours of your flowers and also brings them forward to the eye of the viewer.

    Hope this helps.

    Maybe I should subdue the background and mar the orchids stronger...like a combination of the orchids from one on the background on two. Thanks for the feedback. L

    Your orchids are lovely, Lindea but the b/g's are to strong and busy they distract the eye IMHO

    Beautifully painted orchids

    Background pattern was part of the plan and it looks good to me. Darker background makes the orchids brighter. I like the first one. Try to make background even darker and this will put more accent on the orchids.

    I see these orchids here all the time and you rendered them very well. Colors are smooth and convincing. The BG is competing for attention here. #1 looks good....................TJ

    Your orchids are lovely. I think the backgrounds compete but #2 is the best IMHO.

    I like the darker one best

    I like the higher contrast of flowers and background. The flowers are beautifully done.
