Ranunculus Lyallii ???

CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE !



AAbove photo is of flowers with less modeling compound.



What I hear you saying ???
.... Ranunculus Lyallii....
Well that is the correct name for the Mount Cook Buttercup or also known as Mount Cook Lily.... which is the flower on the side of this painting.... well I thought I was pleased with what I had done with the texture ... but typical of me .... I was looking through some Photographs I had and books etc... on just what they looked like and mine were far to flat looking ... so I have done a few more layers of modelling compound.. with the petals and I think it is slowly looking better.... I have also attached the 2d stones.... but need to do their reflection and paint them + need to shade and paint the flowers ....
so anyway enough of my ramblings .... WHAT DO YOU THINK ??I have taken a photo of a couple of the flowers b4 I have added extra texture so you can see what I mean about them being too flat... and thrown in a photo of the mount cook lily.... till tomorrow cheers.... D :-)
