    Very delicate with nice texture, and some of the petals appear to come right out of the canvas. Wonderful work.

    Thank you Sergio.

    The flowers are essentially dead and were left to dry out in the vase ....they created some nice and delicate shapes as they dried but the stark white background of their youth didn't quite work in their dotage..hence the texture.

    Looks like a photo of a watercolour on canvas (do they even do that?)

    I feel it needs to be square - although I feel there's a bit too much empty space on the right, but moving it right won't work and cropping the top off isn't an option either.

    I do love the pastel shades on the canvas though - exquisite

    Mojo restored I think

    I like your work very much Sharon. I would like to see a portrait orientation keeping the top end of this delicate stem that seem to be reaching up and up...What software do you use for the canvas texture so well rendered?
