Ever since I painted roses last time, I've been thinking about how I would do them again.  The main change I wanted to make was to avoid using white to brighten the lightest petals.  This one accomplishes that although now I may try 'em again with slightly different colors overall.

  1. Your reds are rich and saturated. White can sometimes kill red, I found.

  2. This is stunning! It makes such a difference to not use the white to lighten - like Karen said, so saturated.

  9. Diane,
    Your petals and shaping are gorgeous. I love the variety and movement you capture in them. I keep practicing and don't have it yet- perhaps you can do a teaching dvd for us fans!! That would be almost as fabulous at these:)
