I believe roses to be one of my biggest challenges. They have subtle changes in color and values that can be difficult to portray. Petals bend, concave and face in all kinds of directions. Light can be translucent and opaque. They have certainly been a training ground for "seeing".If you have any ideas for future challenges, please let Carol know.

Feel free to paint from my reference photo. Also feel free to post any tips you have on painting your roses!
Please be sure to follow the spirit and the letter of the challenge.
For example, each submission must be painted after the challenge is posted.
