I sometimes sketch & transfer - as I did here (except for the buds laying in front) - what do you think?

Beautiful job on the roses in both paintings Karen. Sketching them on another paper and transferring them gives you the option of doing them twice (or more) with half the work.

I almost started to tell you that you needed some highlights on the rim of the glass, and then realized that it's actually a bottle of some kind (right?). If so, you need to indicate that a little better on the right side, although I am not sure exactly how. Maybe someone who is better with glass objects could be more helpful. In any case, both paintings are lovely.

Karen, is this the Penny Soto technique that your were trying? The results are gorgeous! I honestly cannot say I prefer one over the other!!! Just beautiful...

Karen,

Great job on both of these. I think I like the bottom one more because there is more color in the roses and you gave them more definition. But my husband who is always looking over my shoulder likes the top one better. He says the flowers are livlier. You did a great job on the leaves too. Wow you are fast, didn't you just start this a few days ago?

These are great, well done! Such delicate detailed work and a nice use of wet in wet.

I like the background on the first one and the main flower on the second. Both are very good paintings.

Thanks everyone for the comments. yes, Char, it's the Penny Soto (abriged - or basterdized) method. I really love the method idea and want to experiement more.

Karen... I am fast and I've been at it all my spare moments. What can I say? it's my addiction!

take care everyone & keep those brushes wet!
