    First attempt at flowers

    Not sure I have the top pansy right but this is my first attempt at a flower - I think I have to lighten the background somewhat

    Rich and prismatic in the rainbow like color almost. I would love these in and around my home. And if they don't yet exist in reality, start the hybrid machines and let's make them happen!

    You got a magnificent rendering of these flowers! You're probably right to observe there ares too much and too dark shadows for flowers en plein air ...

    beautiful pansies, I love the rich colors, you are right that the background is too dark, that is the beauty of layers, if you have painted the flowers on one layer and had the background beneath them you could simply adjust the background to a lighter tone. If you have not used layers you should look into them as they allow you to make all kinds of adjustments to size, color, contrast, placement to all the elements of your work. anyway very nice work on this

    Thanks to everyone for their encouraging words - I did use layers ( I use PS and Paint Shop Pro a lot as I am a tut writer for PSP) so I will be able to lighten it

    Thanks a lot
