Hi everyone, thank you for your lovely comments on this.
Mikki.......yes, I agree, about the buds, I haven't painted many roses, so working on them. This is just a little one from a reference that I cropped from a WDE. It's 8 x 10 Acrylics.
Maureen......I'm not really a yellow flower fan, but wanted to try paint some that were not muddy, or harsh looking. I used cad yellow light, and naples yellow, zinc white and naphol red. I think it worked pretty good. Thanks.
pinkrybns....glad you liked the touches of red. They were just something I added on a spur of the moment at the end.
Glad you think they helped.
Carol.....thanks for your lovely comments again.
