    These dancing fuchsias with their hot, gaudy colours needed a strong contrast so I glazed seven layers of blues and purples to get the rich, dark background. I loved the bit of light flashing through the more transparent parts of the flowers.

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.

    This painting just draws the viewer in. Really like the reflections in the puddles and the depth of field.

    So good!


    This really speaks to me. Well done!
