Caron's right, it IS a rose! :D Very nice, what medium did you use?

I certainly see a rose too. Don't be so hard on yourself. Did you see my rendition of the Horus statue several weeks ago? Mine had sunglasses!!!:D

Have fun, and a great day! :)

Thanks everyone for looking But I know it's not good *S* Wing it's oils. Bad waste of oils LOL Shelly how did I do it? Boy now there is a question. I just started with painting greens all over but then putting highlights on I ended up with almost the same color leaves everywhere. I don't have the faintest idea what I do wrong. The rose went through periods of resembelence but then I think I started lightening it too much too LOL
Here's a pic taking in daylight. Not much better in the light of the day LOL

Luvy ... what's all this talk I've seen on other posts that you can't do flowers?!!? I love this one ... the way the colors flow and blend! You're way too hard on yourself. This is truly a delight to look at!

This painting looks a lot nicer than you think it does. It may not look exactly like the photograph, but it's a PAINTING.
I catch myself trying to make a painting or drawing look like a photo too. Might as well just take a photo! Let paintings be paintings: take a tip from the Impressionists.
I like the creaminess of your petals...not unlike Renoir.
And it probably didn't help that you picked the most difficult picture to paint! :D
Don't give up on flowers...you have a nice touch.

Luvy...sometimes what we consider our biggest mistakes turn out to be our greatest works...*smiles*

Well, I think you only proved that people can do a lot more than they think they can!
I think it's very good, love the colors too.....very nice!

You can do anything you put your mind to Luvy, and see you did :)

Its got a softness to it thats very unique, and blends nicely. Don't be so hard on yourself. For "never" doing flowers it looks very good.
