I’m not sure why this downloaded twice? :idiot2:
This is a very large painting...30 x 36 inches, and was quite a challenge!
I would love some feedback. Not sure if I should add the top of a vase at the bottom.
The photo of it in a room is to scale. I have used this app before if anyone is interested. It’s called IArtView. It’s a great way for people to see the actual size of the painting to scale.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Terri, this orchid painting is MAGNIFICENT.  It looks so good in the bedroom and just brightens up the room. I realise that it is an app you have used but it shows off what it would look like on any wall and gives one a good idea of size etc.  I love it.  Well done.

Terri

I admire you for painting a white flower and at such a huge size.  White is so hard to paint but you seem to have done it quite well.

Yes, the app really helps to visualize the finished piece.

fabulous painting Terri :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: You have done well with the white, which is not easy to paint.I would not add the glass as it would draw your eye down away from the flowers.

 :heeha: Love this!!! I love a painting with strong juxtaposition, mainly because I can see them so clearly and the subject just leaps off the canvas. Beautifully painted Terri.  O0     :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val
