Oh, yes, Gita, the new background really brings the painting alive!

Finally got a chance to see all those little bird paintings.  They are so well done.  Loe the style.

Great job Gita :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
Just one thing that bothers me is that the background seems to form a halo around around the flowers. When adding the background in last always carefully work it up to the subject so that it looks like the background disappears from view at the one side of the object and then continues on the other O0

I did this with oils on paper. Since I drew the outlines with ink, not sure if this is painting or mixed media. So, Val please tell me if this is acceptable for submission. I intend to do some corrections on this or maybe I shall paint again on canvas  :whistle:
Otherwise, I welcome all comments.

Thanks Mea! I also find that oils have such a brilliancy. I choose oils since I had the paints already lying around and did not want it to dry up. Interesting to do this on hot pressed paper for oils and acrylics. I am not sure if I should have primed the paper with acrylic Gesso. Would love to hear any opinion about oils on paper.

You did a wonderful job on this Gita.   I am doing this now and find it extremely challenging with all the print in the clothes and the big pile of material.  I hope you can enter it.
