You're right, it does make the flower "come off the page."  Looking great! :clap:

I thank everyone for the lovely comments!  :clap: I love the change also. It kinda makes the flower painting standout in an almost 3D effect. Particularly near the edges of the petals near it's center. I'm thinking because the clouds are actually painted with a bit of light blue and the flower petals are red is what does it.

Nolan, I think you should do a thing on clouds. Storm clouds, sunset clouds, rainy clouds and on and on. I say this because I created a web page on clouds a ways back, back, back, long time. I haven't had time to change it except for today and that was a very small change. I really need to get to it.  :fight:

It's that it's number 2 on my most visited web pages of my sites. Why, I don't know.  ???  I figure lots of people are interested in learning to paint clouds of all sorts.  656 page views per month average.

Yep lot's of people are watching. The pressure is on. Just one problem. Sorry, I forgot. I may be watching a little bit of Sunday night football.  :yippee: It's kind of hard to concentrate while moving from the TV to the canvas. Tell you what. I'll do some painting during halftime. Either way when it's done I'll put up an image. Just may be off on the timing a tad bit.  :flowers:

Well it's getting there.  :coffee: I thought I'd been a little further with this painting but I find myself busy with the leaves. I've done one under painting, a second under painting and a third. From the art techniques I've learn from the Paint Basket, it seems on each painting session I find I'm doing more detailing making the leaves look more realistic. I feel I can pluck this flower right off the canvas. It's taking a little bit of time but man I am having a whale of a good day.  :yippee:

Of course I would like to thank Paint Basket in showing the many art techniques, such as how to use the color wheel. Flower painting videos and art instructions. This is great! Without with I would not be doing this. Oh, and the happy faces.  ;)

See how the colours work in this painting  :clap: :clap:
Red and green - opposite (complimentary)
Orange and blue - opposite (complimentary)
Red and yellow - harmonious

Beautiful painting.

Dennis, isn't it also amazing how plants, animals  & nature have used these colour phenomena long before we understood it?!
