I did this several months ago, but just saw her post about her rose photos in this forum. I thought I'd share this one with you, and say thanks so much to valchina612 for her beautiful photo at the same time! :) This is soft pastel, about 11x14 inches. http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/14-Aug-2007/88887-bigrose.jpg

This is beautiful, I loved the reference and painted the same rose, it's in here to http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=437959
Nice colors and shadows. How fun. I wonder how many people have painted this beautiful reference?

And it looks really good as your Avatar :)

Pippa, this is absolutely spectacular, and it sure does Val's photo credit. Well done Pippa.

It's a popular image!
This is a lovely pastel Pippa - and I mean no disrespect when I say (at this size on the monmitor) it doesn't look like a pastel painting! :D
It's a beautiful painting - and I wish I could do pastels half as well!

WOW OH WOW Pippa, this is absolutely gorgeous. You make your Pastels talk, this is so beautiful. You have got the colourings down perfectly. Thankyou so much for choosing my Ref. photo from the RIL -- you've made my day. :clap: :thumbsup:

Val. :wave:

I'm glad you all like it! :) It was fun to do, and I think I'm going to do a sister piece from another one of your roses Val. This one was a quick sell too! :)
