Hi All,
I usually hang out in the Acrylic and Landscape forums, this the first work I have posted here. I usually do seascapes with the occasional landscape thrown in but I had a request from the gallery which has some of my work to do a gold rose for a potential client. I had seen a WIP on the traditional Flemish seven layer technique so decided to try the method myself and also do a WIP on it.
Here is the link to the WIP if anyone is interested.

This is on gallery wrap canvas, 120cm by 104cm (48in by41in), Acrylic.
The photo is from the library by jade fox. Comments and critiques are very welcome.

Welcome to the classical forum and thanks for posting your painting. I haven't yet tried the Flemish technique, but I want to.

You have done a good job showing the sense of light on the petals of the rose. You have also caught the sense of how delicate the petals are.

This is a very pretty work! I love the enhanced sense of contrast and three dimensionality in your rendering. :)

Hi Lyn,
Thanks for the comments. I'm still not sure how applicable this technique is for acrylics, probably better suited to oils, but I did find the Dead Layer in particular useful in getting the values right. It made the rest of the work easier.
