Here is a quarter sheet close up on a rose I painted at our art retreat. Oranges are not my favorite colors to work with, so I "made myself" paint this one. I was trying to work some "lost and soft" edges and found that I probably need to paint a bit looser to achieve that look. I may glaze the blue leaf back some more as it is pretty bright. Was fun painting though. Now I need to get back to the tomato painting...still haven't decided on the background.
