Carol or anybody!!! how do I work on the rose vines to make the leaves look more like leaves...I would know what to do if this were oils! Also the roses need more variation of color and will do that too. This is 22x18...a neighbor's window last spring.
Oh, and anything else you want to say, thanks!

Hey Carly...this one is really neat! I would just start putting in some dark values to create the shapes of some leaves now. Don't try to do each and every leaf, but just here and there, especially put some darks behind the roses to make them "pop" out for you. It is like "negative painting" where the background forms the shapes - or leaves in this case. Once you get the contrasts in the roses...sign it... LOVELY !! http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif Carol
