I agree with Ana, Fay, I like them both but here the roses are no longer the stars they were before - maybe it's something to do with the value structure or that the background is a bit busy here?

Dear Ana - Thank you so much for your comments on this painting.  I added this background to my original painting "Ribbons and Roses" which I was very happy with, but I wanted to learn to "loosen up".  I think you will identify with where I am coming from - whether to stay "safe" with what I feel comfortable with or try something I don't feel comfortable with!!!   I've posted this photo in the hope that other artists on this site will give their opinion on both paintings.  Thank you for letting me know your thoughts.

Dear Cristina -  I'm not sure whether I've spoiled my original painting "Ribbons and Roses" but I wanted to venture outside my comfort zone!  Thank you for your encouraging comments.  I'd be interested to hear comments from artist friends on this site which painting they prefer.  I'm of two minds!!!

I like this one too, the background though is a bit too much and somehow the main roses are suppressed. It is possible it's just me or is because the other one has such a simple background.
