Your Strelitzia looks great Dirk, well done :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

You can always darker the background some more if you want. Even adding some dark green to pure black will work O0

I finished my bird -of-paradise.  I used oil paint.

That looks great Bob. Love the colours :clap: :clap: :clap:

What I would like to see is the darker tonal value along the bottom length of the flower as that rounds that area off O0

Thanks everyone for your feedback and comments.  I tried to darken up the bottom like Nolan said.  I used a dry wash like in the tulip video.
