Pamela Allen Class #2 In Style

Wow- I am in awe of Pamela Allen….
I was struggling with my piece for the second lesson. This lesson was all about designing our own gallery of flowers and trees and then incorporating them into a garden scene design.
My first attempt was rather “flat”,  so I went back in and added layers and more flowers. But now the second attempt looked way too busy but disjointed at the same time. And it looked more like a landscape than a garden. So Pamela suggested a fix.

This top version is mine:

Way too busy,eh??  And, as an aside, the tree on the right was inspired by a Georgia O’Keefe tree.

Pamela’s improved version via Photoshop is here(fabrics will need to be filled in where she had to modify the height):
