Mary P. Murphy asked:
Jessica -- this is lovely; you've achieved brilliant color, and I can see where you've used wet-in-wet to get the delicate shading in the petals. Good that you're trying on composition, and I think what would bring this together is to soften or create some very faint activity in the whitish spot in the top center. It's tending to draw the eye, and I don't think you want that. Also try very gently glazing the tulips with cooler colors to make them recede a bit -- get cooler as you go back -- along with making the size of the tulips smaller. Decide where you want the focus to be, and make that spot the highest contrast -- in cool/warm, dark/light, etc. Nice job!!
