There are so many lovely paintings of the Anthiriums here - well done everyone   :)  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Here is my rendition, this one I found far harder to do than all the others, maybe because of the amount of masking fluid I put down. Every time I worked on it I would fine my arm sticking to the mask ....



As always crits, comments and suggestions are most welcome.

Cheers

Looks like a good start. It needs some darker values.

Fi,

When I first looked at this, it looked washed out.  As I leaned back, all the shadings and brightness came back to it. 

Only concern is with the thickness and length of all the whitish reflections on the middle flower - too much of the same shape and length (especially the left side).  The reference painting shows them with varied in width and length.

Otherwise, you have done a marvelous job.  This is one of my very favorites and I will be doing some variations of it as gifts.
