Red Rose, In Progress
I haven't painted in the last few days so I decided to get back to it by practicing a rose. I find red roses the most difficult of flowers. I began this with an underpainting of Quinacradone Magenta in the darker areas - made a mess of the rose so I used Mr. Clean Magic eraser and water to lift some of the color and began again. Still want to form the rose more and perhaps lift some good lights in the petals.
