This is the beginning of a new project. I need to add more detail and push the values a bit more as well as bring out the highlights as well as clean up in general. I don't work from photos but I took one this morning so there would be a reference for here. The CP painting is on Fabriano hot press traditional white, 5x7 using only half the paper.

Here is the WIP:

I've done a bit more work, mostly cleanup and attempting to get better value ranges and getting the petal curvature to be more noticable.

Note that the actual rose image is only about 2 inches, not including the leavs.

Hi Doug,
I like this a lot. You've nailed that scarlet-orange red! The leaves are wonderful.
