That is really beautiful. I love the darker tones and the use of texture, with the "surprise" in the yellows. But the photo itself is pretty masterful, with its unusual composition, cutting off the top of the flowers while showing some beneath the water line of the vase. Wonderful image.

This is so reminiscent of still life paintings from the 18th and 19th centuries done in oil on board. The finer texture of boards, as opposed to canvas, gave a smoother texture to the paintings, similar to what you are showing here.

This is a wonderful combination of overlaid texture use to subject light with this particular image. I also agree with Minnie about the yellow. That little touch just heightens the overall painterly nature of this image. A wonderful art print with commercial appeal. I can see this being sold at craft and art fairs.

Wow this is a wonderful way to see, did you envision this first or develop it along the way? S-
