    Spring All Around Me

    Everything is blooming. All the flowering trees, bulbs and forsythia are blooming. Inspiration for me to paint and make cards.

    They are all very beautiful paintings. I don't know which one is my favorite. A beautiful Easter card too.

    Fine spring cards; very ornamental.
    If I may share some considerations, I notice You seem to mix more or less white to all Your colors, probably to tone down a little the most saturated colors or get lighter tones. However I find that adding white may be risky, to some extent, since it would, in some cases, weaken too much the chroma, increase opacity, provide a milky look and reduce transparency, therefore affecting some flowers rendering effects.

    Thank you

    I appreciate the suggestions. I actually repainted the red tulip painting and it was quite interesting to see the difference.

    That's the magic with artRage, dear MA! I often do the same and make some major departure from how I usually approach and proceed in a painting and often got some inetresting and surprising outcome or discovered useful lessons while You don't have to worry to spoil a painting because of the undo feature and the separation of layers.
