What are you most proud of? I think I achieved more natural greens. They are still very gray, but better.

Joy -- you have a very distinctive touch; very enjoyable to see your treatment of your subjects. I like the gray greens you achieve. You could vary them with brighter yellow highlights or blue shadows. You could perhaps define one of the shadowy flowers ever so slightly to connect the other flowers a bit -- the space in the right third feels a bit empty right now. But try it on acetate first! Nice job. Mary

I made some of the suggested changes and tried to bring more contrast into the picture. I am not sure how to intensify the one flower and give it a more natural feel. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help!

Hi Mary, I added more blue tones and brought out one of the flowers in the grass.

Hi Amy! These are gorgeous! The moods on the first painting was bright and sunny while the 2nd one was like refreshing cool rainy day :)
