I love the myriad of shapes and choice of colour.  It is very fresh!

I think I will just paint out the shadow on the bottom lily pad...easier... and there will be an empty space on the left if I take that one out.

Hi Sharon.  I love the design and complimentary color harmony.  I would suggest that you do more with the white flower ... you only have 2 values.  I would suggest 2 values in the light, and 2 values in the darks for that flower.  also, the leave on the left looks like it is above the bottom leaf ...and actually casting a shadow.  The shapes between those 2 Lilly pads are very ambiguous as to what those shapes represent.  do you see how that left pad looks like it is sitting on a ledge above the bottom lily pad?  I would actually take that left lily pad out and replace with the violet water and a very few stalk reflections.  That way, you get rid of the ambiguous look, and ... the violet color of your complimentary pair becomes the dominant color.
