    Just STUNNING! Lovely work Belinda. I would just keep it somewhere that you can look at it for the next few days, and then you will see any areas you may want to change. Personally, (and this is just me personally) – I would darken the blue in the top left hand corner just a teeny little bit just for a bit of contrast against the red. Overall I think it is wonderful, and quite fine as it is.

  • Thanks Lynda, just got home from school and guess what I darkened the blue and took another photograph. Thanks for your help. I am going to upload the second version tonight. So a big thanks for that. I do think it looks better.

    This is your very own, unique expression – I believe that only you can judge whether it needs to be changed or not. But I simply love what you have done. It’s vibrant, alive, and it conveys a wonderful sense of joy about this garden. Definitely paint a series!

  • Wow that is exactly what I wanted to do but my art teacher wants me to try my hand at my “woman in landscapes” on large canvases. I’m guessing I will just have two paintings going at once because I do want to do a series. Thanks Elaine. I have a new version as I glazed the sky darker. It does look more intense. B

    Hi again Belinda. Yep – I reckon just that little touch of extra blue gives added depth. It is a great painting, and sure to be featured somewhere or other!
