Day 174 A Couple More Columbines

Columbines #2
Oil on Gessobord
6 x 6
My first attempt at columbines. Ideally, I would
keep the colors of the petals transparent. Under
proper lighting they almost glow. Without proper lighting the
colors are very flat. Since most people don't put paintings
under spot lights I felt it was best to use lighter colors for
 the lighter values rather than reflected light. What do you think?
