Robin, your painting is beautiful! Very 3 D looking, as Natalie said.  I think the background really makes the flowers pop.

Gee, Ladies!!  Beautiful daffodils.  They are all so lovely.  Good job, all of you.

Thank you Retta and Christina.  I was very pleased with my background, it has the
appearance of suede, almost pastel like. I struggled a bit with the flower, but
was determined to finish.

Excellent daffodils, Robin :clap: :clap: :clap:    The white flower is there for shading practice as many struggle with painting  white flowers. O0

Nice work Sherri,  i agree with Natalie, also you should add your shadows on the leaves at the base of the flowers.

Well done on the flowers, Sherri.  :clap: :clap: :clap:  From what I can see in the painting you have tried to paint the background with a dry brush (brush strokes cannot merge).
More water is needed to paint a more smoother background (Wet-in-wet) O0

Flowers are great, Sheri, but I agree -- darken up your background n the shadows.  You are doing so well with your painting....proud of you!
