Practice-flower with color

Project Description

What type of piece is this? Painting Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Hi Mary: I practiced doing the flower with color. I tried varying the background, not sure if I overdid it. Do you think the upper left corner competes with the flower? I also had problems with the lower left corner that was too pink and dark and it distracted from the flower. I glazed it over with cobalt blue but that did not help. I wanted to tone it down. Then I glazed it with veridian (the complement) and this time it worked or at least improved it. I'll keep practicing. Is the piece for sale? No

Q&A with lmfr

Jessica Bartlett asked:
This is really nice! I think the light source needs to be established. It seems like the light should come from the top left, leaving the bottom right darker. Just an idea.
lmfr answered:
Thanks, will try that.
