This is from a photo taken at the Botanical gardens display of the June roses recently. Done in acrylics on w/c paper. With all the rain we've had, the garden was in full bloom. Thanks for looking.

Nice and fresh. I would suggest softening of the farther edges of the petals and some of the leaves, and subduing a little the very light and bright leaves.

Thanks Marion and Geoff for your input. Yes, I agree the leaves need work, will do.

Went back into the roses and added some more darks and I think it is finished. Also worked on a yellow rose of which the shadow under the petals needed softening and added more darks to the background. Thanks for looking.

Both paintings are lovely! I like the changes you made to the pink rose painting.
