Red Roses, Problems & More Practice Needed
I began this 1/4 sheet painting this morning and right off, had trouble with getting a smooth flow in the petals. That means this sheet is going to be used for gradation and more value practice. Maybe I'm trying to get all the values in, in one fell swoop, instead of layering the values and shades. The reds are Deep Scarlet (in the darker values), Permanent Red, Quin. Coral and Quin Pink. Then on the upper petal I used Permanent Red and Sap Green in the darker areas.
