Experimenting With Bright, Bold Backgrounds

I've found some old paintings to experiment with. I'm putting bright, bold backgrounds in to see if it's a good way to perk up a dull painting. All of them had rather wimpy backgrounds before but I didn't think to take a "before' picture. The poinsettia had an especially pale blue background and I think the bright background has really perked it up. These paintings are small but I think the bright backgrounds is an effective way to call some attention to them.

I started watercolor painting earnestly in 1991 after I moved to Florida. My husband and I are retired, and we are both artists. We both have works displayed  at the Wildchild Gallery in Matlacha Florida.
