If this is your second floral, I can't wait to see your 3rd! My first thought was how'd he do that with watercolor? Wonderful - I'm especially impressed by the primary leaf and the far right blossom.

Oh Glory be Terry, this painting is absolutely divine. Oh to be able to paint Roses like that in Watercolour. The whole thing is so Catherine Klein. I just love it -- bring on #3 please, I can't wait to see it. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Terry this is absolutely stunning. I love the background and your leaves too. This must look fabulous all framed and matted. Well done.

Beautiful, Terry! It has a subtle softness that I just love. It's like I can almost feel the petals. Well done!

This is really beautiful, the leaves look great! I love the way the roses and leaves seems to blur out in the distance... perfect!

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed viewing your pink roses. Everything about the painting is impressive. The background with close leaves and the more distant leaves is such a beautiful way to enhance the subject. Also, the triangular composition is very pleasing to the eyes. The roses fading into the background emphasize the detail of the closer roses.

You mentioned Winsor deep red, which I have not used, but which I will now purchase. I do use the Aureolin you mentioned. I find it makes a wonderful green when mixed with Cobalt blue without adding anything to gray it down.
