Angry Bothersome White Roses

Hello artists! Hope you're doing well!

I have started this painting from about 4 years ago and from then have stopped working on it because I have a huuuge block.

I don't know what to do, I think there are too much flowers but I don't know which ones to cancel. Also the flowers are all diffrent styles Maybe less brown and more other colors?

Any suggestions will be fantastic

Thanks

Re: Bothersome White Roses

The arrangement looks OK, although I might suggest moving one in particular. It is not possible to offer any suggestions on value, color, or other things because the image is so small. It would help if you posted a larger image -

Re: Bothersome White Roses

Here is it's correct orientation.



Your values are good, and the drawing/handling has the right feel. Many of your colors are neutral toward brown. If you were set up an actual rose like this, you may see very little neutral and begin to see more nuances of color. True and clean color is very important with flowers, and I am guessing this is work from a photo.

The composition is good, but the bottom has two symmetrical arrangements- I would shift one flower to break that mirroring. Also, draw the vase as accurately and symmetrically as you are able.

Re: Bothersome White Roses

Thanks alot I really appreciate your feedback, and thanks for flipping the pic!
The reference was from a real life vase of flowers that has long since been thrown out.

You’re welcome. Of course- buy a white rose, put some light on it, and observe.

Re: Bothersome White Roses

I like them, I do want them to be more full tho, ... some extra roses leading off the canvas wouldn't upset me.
