Tulip Study

Tulip Study | Brandon SchaeferFlowers tend to give me a hard time for some reason. Although, I do like aspects of this one but there's always something about it.. maybe the lack of darker values that I'm not used to but when I was looking at it - there weren't any darker values and I feel it would destroy the flower - although the background could be darker? I'm still working on subtle value changes and becoming more sensitive to those. Hope you enjoy it, either way.
