This really stands out Steve, the background looks very interesting....a new technique?

Great painting

Lovely and I really like how you've painted the background

Cheers Graham, Heather and Romila

Cheers Fiona, Yes I've been mark making in general and putting any good feedback into my pics. I'm playing with fire, literally and using burnt paper, candle smoke, inks, wax, PVA and acrylics...anything I can lay my hands on really to see what happens. Thanks for looking

Well, whatever you are throwing at it Steve, it looks good! It gives the painting depth and texture, the lilies look as though they are standing proud from the canvas.

Great work!

Love this, Steve, and totally agree with Fiona!

Agree with other comments- this really stands out. Beautiful

Fabulous, just my cup of tea Steve! Love the background brilliant.

Cheers Thalia, Carole,Tony and Margaret, thanks for looking
