moving right along ... the stool is almost finished

time to think - I definitely liked it better before you added the pale yellow - it goes from sweet naive folk painting with depth to overworked and "trying too hard".

Thanks, Mud Mama. I wasn't (and am still not) sure. Does anyone else want to weigh in on this before I start sanding and re-painting? I would really appreciate your input on this.

Oh...don't sand and start all over!
I would try to blend (softly and subtlety) the area where it goes from the darker to the lighter...try to leave a bit of the lighter colour...but try to blend it some...see what happens there...and if you aren't happy with it...just redo the yellow petals...but you don't have to start from scratch!

It looks like you have already verethaned it...but just paint over that and then re-do the verethane...

I like a bit of colour variation in the petals...but I think the change from the darker to lighter is a bit abrupt...

I was only going to re-do the petals ... so I'll start with your idea of softening the shift by brushing gold over part of the yellow. Then I will take a photo and you can both vote again.
