fading away roses

I put down a wash of yellows and pinks, then tried to negatively paint to find the petals. 
I did some washing out of stems and leaves that I thought were too messy, then painted them back in when the paper was dry.

Very beautiful, love the colours

This is one of my favorites. Congrats on your nerve in washing out the leaves: that area is now just suggested and isn't pulling attention away from the roses themselves. Excellent work.

You've really succeeded with this one - the softness, looseness and the beautiful colors, too!

Love, love, love this. Roses are hard, and you have expressed their beauty perfectly.

XOXOXO Barbara
