What better than a Rose? Roses are one of the most beautiful flowers (my other favorite is the peony), but I find them challenging because of all the intricate details. They have a lot of color shapes and values within the overall shape which can make them seem too complicated to tackle. I found however, that if you can describe the main perimeter shape and the main basic interior shape, they are much easier to handle... and remember it isn't necessary to paint each and every little detail unless that is your painting style.
Materials are acrylic primed linen sheet and my usual bristle brushes and color palette. The rose is and off-white silk type, and while it has a softer look that a real freshly picked bloom, it won't wilt on me while I'm getting my time schedule back on track. It is sitting in the little purple box with glass for reflections.
Wishing myself more time tomorrow to complete!
With this many areas in question, it might be a good idea, to scrape down and adjust. The lesson here, again, is to simplify.
Using the converted image with other judgments (the result of course is still judgment/opinion).
I didn't scrape everything before I started making changes, alas, I started to notice a few other things that I could do!
Thanks for reading...
