    Pai,
    you mentioned the background as an issue. you may be able to try a gradient going diagonally from top right to bottom left following the light. lighter at top right darkest bottom left.
    if you used layers this might be the background layer topped by the flower layer. Hope you understand what I mean......experiment as you often do.
    ooh, try keeping the same colors.
    You'll know when you get there!

    Hi Pai. So great to see another style from you. You do it so good! It has good colors. An unusual angle. And most of all - that great background. It gives movement and energy to the artwork. Good work! DoodLS

    pai- You are reaching new heights in your paintings. This one, as many have said, is exquisite. You've captured the light weight of those petals in the wind and the colors... I am so grateful to have the gift of sight.
    Be well,

    I love the flowers.

    It looks a bit like the background was painted hastily and just put behind it.

    This could be a really fine painting because the flowers are most attractive and carefully handled.

    The question to ask yourself when you compose a painting like this is 'How do I see the background as supporting the subject in this painting?'
