Painting more than once when learning is called revision and is the best way to learn. Do the same techniques but with other colors and the give for presents or sell them.

I've done that many times.

If you do another one Pat, would be interesting to see them together to see the changes and effect.
Cheers, Val

Ok, I hope this post. I finally changed the background to blue-grey. I like the change but need to do some touch up still. I think it did for me exactly what I wanted. Cooled things off and made the flower stand out more. However that doesn't mean I am all that satisfied.  This is a practice flower and I am learning alot. So ultimately if I don't love this painting, it really doesn't matter. But I do like the color change.

Any opinions?? BTW, the glare is really bad on the most recent picture. So it changes things a bit.

Thanks All.
Will

No, I did not change the flower at all. It seems that the glare may have some to do with the color change in the redness of the flower. It is much more intense now. The glare mainly washes out some of the shadows. but they are still there really. You are absolutely correct that the back ground really can change the way other colors look on the canvas.

I have been simmering on it for hours now and it is really growing on me. Much more than the original peachy color.  I plan to touch up some areas and paint the water drops and see what happens. Its all a learning process at this point. Going from such a warm harmonious painting to a dual tone cool and warm situation has been a test for sure. It will surely help me make better paintings down the road.

The only problem I have with the background is that it is now going "around" the flower and not behind it. This means you have lost the distance between the background and the flower.
Remember that is why we paint from back to front and used the masking tape to block the front objects.

I would suggest waiting till the flower is dry and then taping it up again to ensure the background goes "behind" the flower. O0

Thank you for the help Nolan, I revised the photo with the most recent one. It is amazing how different light and background can make the flower seem so much more red. I am going to leave it be until we do the water drops. Touch ups are done and added a little more highlight to some areas.

I know I could keep messing with it forever.

Thanks for the sharp suggestions.

 :clap: Brilliant. I really like the new background colour, and I see what Nolan is referring to. How would you go about correcting that?  :confused:
