I have to say this has been one of the best critiques ive ever gotten. Thank you so much for taking the time, i always love hearing how people see my work. The tulip is actually my favorite flower and always had a hard time expressing why. I found it to be secretive and almost seductive in its silhouette. I wanted to translate that into this bookmark and im so glad that it it came across the way it did. I admit i was afraid upping the contrast would take away from the subtle mood. That might be more by an inability to control my reds more than anything xD But youre probably right more pop would have been better! Again thank you for taking the time to break down the piece, its always helpful seeing my work through fresh eyes.
I can't tell you how much i appreciate you taking your time to give me such a detailed critique. these are always so very important for my improvement! im honored that i was the first to pop the critiquing cherry! XD
