This is very beautiful. I love how you've used all these colors here. The flowers are excellently done, and the way you've perfected it with such detailing is REALLY impressive. I love the bug on it too. Youve made it look life like. I like its wings the best, the way you've shown every little pattern on it. What i really like is, how you've used a lighter color tone in the background, adding shades of some other colors all the while, it makes the bright red flowers stand out really well. The white highlights you've left at places in the background gives it an overall dreamy affect. I find it FANTASTIC. It's a job well done :)
What do you think?

Vision- Very beautiful. Amazing detail for a watercolor piece. But the corner with the cool colors takes away from the piece as a whole; it makes the work look unbalanced.
Originality-
Technique- Very nicely done. The white lines and black shades adds great detail. The colors are blended nicely and shows that the artiest has a lot of practice with watercolor. Referring back to my comment about the cool color corner; instead of having the focal point on the butterfly the cool colors draws the viewers' eyes away from the rest of the image. Also if the butterfly is the intend focal point it's too close to the center of the work. (refer to the rule of thirds)
Impact- Overall pleasing; would like to see more.

Do you remember Odysseus?His destination was Ithaka,but it was his journey that turned him to who he was and not his destination.
Same applies here.Some times participating is more exciting than winning a prise ;)
Although winning is good too!!:lmao: :giggle:
