Lilacs in their final version

Here is the final painting. See if you can see the things done
to it that differ from the last post of it about halfway done!
I am loving this painting. Did it all in one afternoon because
the flowers were drooping fast! Tried to take breaks so I
would be sure to see it 'freshly' during the painting process.
It is so easy to lose one's objectivity if you paint on one painting
too long. One of my teachers told me that 2 hours is about
the maximum time you should work on a piece without stopping.
I have adhered to that and it does make a difference.
