Thanks Paintonbrush! You are my supporter:) !
You know, all the time I used only graphite and lately charcoal for my art. But suddenly I decided to explore colors and it scared me a lot in the beginning. Probably instead doing something simple I started with complicated kid's portrait and fail it completely. But I belong to people who after some mistakes just pushed harder to reach the goal. So, here is my rose’s serial... I just hope to reach some level in colors mixing and generally understanding colors. So difficult… But with WC it is much easier...;)

Thanks TScottDove and Fagan! I hope to not disappoint you at the end. I can, I know myself:)

Thanks for support!

Alyona,
Can't say I've seen your other roses, but I'm glad I've seen the beginnings of this one. Super detailing on the leaves already. The flower itself looks very promising especially the subtle shading.

Have a great day! :)

What do you think?
Can I improve it somehow or leave it alone?

Thanks for looking!

Alyona, it is superb !. For me it is the best out of three. I can feel it's petals under my fingers touch.

Thanks Julia!
...Endless battle with colors.... sigh!
I guess it is enough of roses :D
(I am tired with it, I can imagine, how tired you to look at it :evil: ;))
Time to come back to graphite and charcoal again (for a while;) )
