I like the painterly feel of your composition of the Magnolia tree blossom with the blossoms standing out strongly against the darkened diffused feel of the background. There is a natural flow in the picture created by the diagonal placement of the blossoms.

Nicely done. Such lovely blossoms.

Superb magnolias, Ruth... :)
Really a joy for the eye.

You got the pink just right, although my magnolia tree blossoms never looked so good! Hard to isolate them like you have. The swirling background colors complement the swirling leaves and petals. Very beautiful.

I generally overlook painted flower comps, but this is a wonderfully
executed technique. I'm curious, did you use a Wacom tablet to "pull"
the colors? It's pale colors create a subtle intimacy in my mind.

This is beautiful! The dark background really makes this pop!

Tod, yes I did use a Wacom tablet and pen to "pull" the colors.

Steve, thank you.
