Nice change in style.

I prefer this image over your previous posting. There is a symmetrical between the top and bottom of the image, the muted colors work particularly well with a black background color, and there is a paintlike feel to the composition. In this case the horizontal banding creates the sense of a painting produced on window blinds.

Beautifully worked - and pretty!

Have you tried experimenting with an uneven amount of flowers? I notice you have a tendency to go for 'even' (horses, birds etc). I think 'uneven' subjects make an image stronger.

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks Els: I don't really get too hung up on the even/uneven thing. I just do what works for me at the time, especially my outdoor work. There will be some uneven pieces in this series but I didn't plan that specifically. I just proceeded as things and material came available.

It has a look of rubbings, or maybe pencil crayon drawings.

I tend to think it would be better without the horizontal bands. Colour scheme is beautiful, though.
