Wow! Wow! Art Buddy Michael
You totally worked it out, Girl!
Yeah - that pesky hindsight! But what a great teacher. :)
I think it would be distracting and spoil the composition if it were another color - the flower and the gold stripes put the eye where it needs to go. This is charming!!
I agree with others, the inside of the bowl was handled differently enough, and it's beautifully complementary to the cloth, not distracting.
I like the sameness of the color. It lends to the abstractness of the composition as well as the beauty of the painting.
I love this but I agree that they are too close in value and saturation and changing either of those a bit would make it even better. Really cool composition....love it
Just dynamic, Lisa! the stripe coming in at an angle is perfect!
